28 October – 31 October 2015, Barbican, London
We are delighted to present the work of Karen Finley in this year’s festival. Karen is one of the most significant performance makers in the world and this work is simply unmissable.
Drawn from performance texts, letters, poetry and fragments compiled by the artist between 1983 and 1994, Written in Sand is a lyrical and highly personal testimony. It recalls a time in which loss, indifference and cruelty came to define the lives of people with AIDS, their friends and families.
Tickets are now on sale from the Barbican website.
