Michael Clark Company New Work 2012...

Last Friday Darren, Rachael, Stu and I went to see the Michael Clark Company perform New Work 2012 at Barbican Theatre in London's glitzy Barbican Centre.

The double bill of contemporary dance was simply sensational. The first part was choreographed to music by Scritti Politti and the second, called "Who's Zoo?", to music including Pulp’s F.E.E.L.I.N.G.C.A.L.L.E.D.L.O.V.E and also by Relaxed Muscle.

Relaxed Muscle (aka Jarvis Cocker's alter-ego Darren Spooner) actually performed live four of their songs; The Heavy, Let It Ride, Beastmaster and B-Real most of which is from their album A Heavy Nite With... And they were awesome.

The show got brilliant reviews too. 'The most exhilarating new piece of contemporary dance to appear in Britain this year, by turns ravishing, outrageous, borderline certifiable, and sometimes all three at once.' - Daily Telegraph

The only down side was perhaps that the running time was a tad short - just 80 mins *including* interval. We loved it so much we're going back again this Thursday!
