Random International invites you to experience the Rain Room, the latest installation by digital-based contemporary art studio rAndom International. The Curve has been transformed into a 100square metre field of falling water which responds to presence and movement. The visitors can simply watch the spectacle or experience how it might feel to control the rain.

Within this set-up, dancers from Wayne McGregor – Random Dance perform continuously evolving interventions in the Rain, with a score by contemporary composer Max Richter.

Random International are known for their distinctive approach to digital-based contemporary art. Their experimental artworks come alive through audience interaction and staged performance.

IMPORTANT: Performances will take place on Sundays only, 18  November, 2 December, 20 January and 24 February, 11 –  5pm.

Admission is FREE.
