Miss Revolutionary Idol Berserker – UK Premiere
Created by Toco Nikaido
22 June – 2 July at the Barbican (The Pit)
6.30 & 9.30pm
‘blasts the audience with the sound and fury of Japanese youth culture’
Sydney Morning Herald
Orchestrated by Tokyo-based artist and pop-idol Toco Nikaido, this is Japanese subculture conveyed in all its multi-coloured, cacophonous, frenetic glory.
Prepare to be equipped with a rain poncho and earplugs as twenty-five performers swarm the stage at breakneck speed, armed with an abundance of disposable props and sub-cultural references. In a frenzied homage to otagei, (ritualised dancing and chanting by groups of fans) this riotous company hurtle towards a festival-like finale that invites everyone to take part.
Presented by LIFT and the Barbican.
