Ryoji Ikeda - superposition

A breathtaking display of technology, music and art

27 - 28 March 2013 / 20:00
Barbican Theatre - London

Employing a spectacular combination of synchronized video screens, real-time content feeds, digital sound sculptures and – for the first time in Ikeda’s work – human performers,superposition explores the thrilling conceptual world opened up by quantum theory.

Ikeda’s immersive and viscerally exciting music plunges you into the grey space between 0 and 1, true and false, where uncertainty and probability coexist, through a powerful display of technology and art designed to take the spectator inside the indescribable structures at the very foundation of all life.

Leading Japanese electronic composer and visual artist Ryoji Ikeda returns to the Barbican after the sell-out success of his audiovisual concert datamatics [ver 2.0] as part of SPILL Festival of Performance 2011.
