Clark's dance 'Heroes' in London

Dancers from the Michael Clark Company make a return visit to London's Barbican after a touring the country with the production come, been and gone.

David Bowie's music features in many of the modern dance performances, as do songs by Lou Reed, Iggy Pop and Brian Eno.

Clark, the Scottish choreographer who cites the Velvet Underground, Kraftwerk and Nina Simone among his influences, is renowned for collaborations with bands, fashion designers and visual artists including Wire, BodyMap, Leigh Bowery, Trojan and Sarah Lucas.

Come, been and gone had a sell-out season at the Barbican last year and then toured Norwich, Warwick and Sheffield. It is in London until 12 June and then moves to the Brighton Dome.
