Inspired by Sadie Plant’s seminal book Zeros and Ones (1997), Kairos brings together performers from the worlds of opera, electronic and experimental composition, in a futuristic staging by avant-garde fashion studio Boudicca.

Responding directly to the architectural environment of The Sainsbury Gallery, Kairos will provide a journey through the new spaces with a series of choreographed sequences.

You are invited to watch song recitals on the hour, every hour.
