I don’t know where I’m going.
If life is uncomplicated,
I am elaborate.
Hearing that alot lately;
Never will I not look at you completely.”
“From finding your way inside the Barbican and stage set up to latecomers and no-interval performances, we celebrate a day in the life of the Centre, as seen through the eyes of a Barbican Host.
In this case, Barbican Host – and poet – Paul Haworth in his poem, ‘Welcome’.
Pushing the boundaries of theatre, dance, film, music and visual art, we are Europe’s largest multi-arts centre.”
