IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER IF IT’S ACTUALLY RAINING OR NOT – WHAT MATTERS IS WHERE THE RAIN IS COMING FROM

It Doesn’t Really Matter If It’s Actually Raining or Not – What Matters is Where the Rain is Coming From is a minimal site-specific one-on-one performance conducted simultaneously by 5 performers choreographed by artist Yoko Ishiguro. Audience members are invited, one by one, to walk with a performer and look at the world around from under an umbrella, listening to the sounds of falling raindrops. In silence, visitor and performer walk around and view the surrounding scenery in their imaginary rain, evoking their own memories and feelings of rain, while negotiating a path and creating a silent, intimate relation between two strangers and their shared response to the specific environment of the spaces of the Barbican building.

Performers: Yoko Ishiguro with Nathalie Czarnecki, Anna Pickles Harvey, Elenor Hellis and Hannah Millest.
