We supported the first US tour of the Michael Clark Company's critically-acclaimed production 'come, been, and gone', which was made primarily using the music and videos of legendary singer-songwriter David Bowie, Iggy Pop and others. Clark's precise and strong choreography echoes Bowie's unique body language to create an evening of creative dance, music and images.
'come, been, and gone' also embraced the work of Lou Reed and Brian Eno, as well as some of Clark's other influences, such as the Velvet Underground.
Hailed as 'British dance's true iconoclast', Michael Clark emerged in the 1980s as a prodigy at London's Royal Ballet School. He has remained at the forefront of innovation in dance, collaborating with compelling artists such as Sarah Lucas, Leigh Bowery, Peter Doig and Charles Atlas. He has also worked with the musicians Mark E. Smith, Wire, Scritti Politti and Relaxed Muscle.
