After a sold out season at the Barbican in 2009, Michael Clark Company returns with Come, Been And Gone, the next instalment of his critically acclaimed production made primarily to the music of David Bowie.

Come, Been And Gone also embraces the work of Bowie’s key collaborators: Lou Reed , Iggy Pop , Brian Eno and touches on some of his influences; The Velvet Underground , Kraftwerk (real) and Nina Simone (imagined).

Come, Been And Gone choreographer Michael Clark creates work which combines his classical (technical) integrity with a more complex, contemporary sensibility embracing virtue and vice, abandon and control, grace and embarrassment. He is renowned for his collaborations with bands, fashion designers and visual artists including Wire, BodyMap, Leigh Bowery, Trojan and Sarah Lucas.
