Curtain Call: Dan Deacon
Electronic-music iconoclast Dan Deacon performs at the Roundhouse
Internationally renowned artist, architect and designer, Ron Arad, brings his incredible 360˚ installation Curtain Call back to the Roundhouse as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations. The epic floor-to-ceiling artwork made of 5,600 silicon rods suspended from an 18 metre diameter ring provides a canvas for films, live performance and audience interaction. Arad is reinventing the curtain experience for 2016. Alongside the installation the Roundhouse will present a series of Curtain Call Live performances – immersive live music gigs. This time around it's electronic-music iconoclast Dan Deacon performing at the Roundhouse. Deacon, who is well known for his live shows, released Glass Riffer, his eight studio album, last year to great critical acclaim. This is a brand new site-specific composition in which the audience will be the performers. Deacon is set to use the entire venue, both inside and out, as the stage. "Complex, endlessly layered and hyperactive." – Evening Standard Over 14s only. Latecomers will only be admitted at the discretion of the house.
"Deacon makes teeming crackpot electronica and plays live shows that are like being inducted into a friendly cult."
