‘If I write how it feels to me, will it make you feel the same?’ This is the heartfelt question Keaton Henson is posing to us, the audience, through his latest project ‘Six Lethargies’, which is premiering at the Barbican this summer. The show, which took over three years to produce, fuses themes of human emotion and mental illness with the beautiful sounds of Britten Sinfonia, who are the Barbican Associate Ensemble that rock the brutalist joint on a regular basis.
A multi-sensory experience awaits those who enter the Barbican Hall this Friday night, with audience members having the option to contribute via their emotional state. Thanks to the input of neuroscientists, and a so-called ‘thrill engineer’, bio-metrics will be controlling the ambience of the show in real time, so there’s no telling how the show could pan out.

Sounds cool, huh? Then grab your ticket – there are only a handful left!
