To start the evening, Weeks and drummer Luca Caruso will perform music in the galleries inspired by their soundtrack for the animation and improvised in dialogue with Barbara Hepworth’s sculptures. Drinks will be available to enjoy while experiencing the works.

Following the performance, join us for a screening of the animation, a reading of the narration and an in-conversation between Weeks, Armitage and Peake, who will discuss their creative collaboration. There will also be an opportunity to see some of the 2000 original drawings made during the development of the animation.

To celebrate the launch of our Young Members scheme, all Members & Young Members with a ticket to the event are invited to a free drinks reception at our Garden Café between 5 and 6pm on Tuesday 5 July.
