"Absolutely sumptuous Sean Rafferty BBC Radio 3

Dominie Hooper’s voice pushes forth a depth, darkness, and arresting honesty, as her songs dissect shame, sexuality, survival and identity with an ever-present sense of solidarity and optimism. Her sound draws from English folk, classical music, alt-rock, and avant-garde pop, defying easy categorisation, and pushing at the boundaries of standard folk and singer-songwriter fare.
Hooper, a London-based, Dartmoor-born singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, spent years as a sought-after collaborator and session musician working and touring with the likes of Yola, Alabaster Deplume, and Band of Burns, as well as on avant-garde theatre projects with companies such as James Thierree and Verity Standen. However, 2022 sees the launch of her ambitious solo venture. Mikey Kenney, Phil Self (Cocos Lovers, Will Varley), and Corrie Dick (Dinosaur) complete this carefully conceived band with a musical connection that is both eclectic and electrifying.
Live, Dominie Hooper’s undeniable stage presence makes you feel in the company of an old friend, and the embrace of musicians on stage emanates warmth through the room. Prepare for a hug and a punch in the gut, as this exhilarating new solo artist promises to make an undeniable impact on the world of contemporary folk and beyond.
With support from Alex Hart who has performed on tour with Seth Lakeman, Jethro Tull's Martin Barre and is an acclaimed singer songwriter and performer in the Plymouth and southwest live music scene)

Covid 19 Safety 
The health, safety and comfort of our audiences, colleagues and performers are very important to us.

Before you arrive

We have a number of measures in place to ensure your comfort and safety.
Enhanced hygiene procedures are in place which include thorough cleans between performances and our ReBels training sessions. We have increased the circulation of fresh air throughout the building so it might be cooler than you are used to. You may want to bring an extra layer, just in case. Hand sanitising stations are positioned throughout the public spaces for audience members and ReBels training members to use and we ask that you do so frequently.
We continue to monitor the latest guidance from the UK Government and the team here will continue to wear face coverings in all areas of the theatre.

When you arrive

Whilst we encourage members of the audience to continue to wear a mask we understand that more and more people are making the decision not to so we would like audiences to be aware that people sitting around them may not wear a mask throughout. If you are concerned about this please get in contact with our Audience Experience Manager Robyn who can discus options for seating that will help you feel more safe.
The Barbican team will all wear face coverings / shields (unless medically exempt) and are also regularly lateral flow tested. This includes our practitioners, core team, the team front of house and back stage.

Social Distancing

Barbican Theatre largely programmes one night performances, with a capacity of either 110 or 140. Due to this programming model at present we are unable to offer socially distanced performances. Please get in contact if you would like to discus seating options for any upcoming events and where possible we will find you an area in the auditorium with the most distance for other audience members.
