Barbican Portraits: The Theatre

Even before the actors take to the stage, as the audience is taking their seats, the Barbican Theatre is already producing a performance of its own…

As part of our Barbican Portrait series, inviting you to explore the unseen spaces of the Centre, this latest exploration ventures behind the curtain, backstage and to the heights of the Barbican Fly Tower.

A quiet applause for the hidden beauty in the technical and the architectural, watch what happens as we raise the curtain on the other side of the stage.
