come, been and gone.

Hailed as “British dance’s true iconoclast,” Michael Clark is a defining cultural figure of the UK.  White Bird is proud to introduce the Michael Clark Company to the Pacific Northwest with Clark’s exceptional 6-member dance company performing his critically acclaimed come, been and gone, primarily using the music and video of  legendary singer-songwriter David Bowie as well as Iggy Pop and others.  An exciting middle section has been added for the US tour set the extraordinary sounds of Lou Reed’s and John Cale’s Velvet Underground.  Clark’s rigorous yet forceful choreography echoes Bowie’s unique body language to create an evening of dance wedded to inimitable music and images.

Commissioned by Barbican, London and Dance Umbrella (Lond0n), La Biennale di Venezia and Dansens Hus (Stockholm) as part of European Network of Performing Arts (ENPARTS). Co-produced by Barbican, London, Dance Umbrella, Michael Clark Company, Edinburgh International Festival, Grand Theatre de Luxembourg and Maison des Arts de Cretail. Michael Clark Company is supported by Arts Council England.

The  October 2014 US Tour of Michael Clark’s come, been and gone is supported by the British Council.
