The DeadItalian theatre group Citt di Ebla presents its contemporary take on James Joyce's short story The Dead, part of the writer's 1914 collection Dubliners. In the story, a woman is transfixed when she hears a song at a party that transports her back to memories of her first love, a boy who gave his life to be with her. For this 55 minute Barbican performance, we join a female dancer in her bedroom as she relives the powerful emotions of her youth. A projected backdrop of real-time photographic images plays with ideas of memory, reality and connections between moments in time. The Dead forms part of this year's London International Mime Festival and is considered suitable for 14+. There will be a post-show talk on 29 January.

About Barbican The Pit

In the two theatre spaces - the Barbican Theatre and the Pit - you can enjoy everything from gritty reality to far-flung fantasy, from dance to drama, from established artists to those at the start of their careers. One of the country's largest arts centres, the distinctive concrete walls of the Barbican continue to house high quality theatrical productions. More about Barbican The Pit
