The visitor might think that ‘The Bite’ is the name of somewhere to eat but in fact it is an acronym standing for Barbican International Theatre Events.

Throughout the year The Bite showcases new theatre and dance productions by artists, companies and producers from all over the world.

If you are looking for fresh new work that hovers on the very edges of classification, this is the place. The productions marry dance, theatre and music in unexpected ways, and explore what theatre can be.

Many successful artists have got their start at The Bite which is currently Artistically associated with Deborah Warner, Michael Clark Dance Company, Cheek by Jowl and Boy Blue Entertainment.

Tickets can be much cheaper than for West End productions and there is a wide programme of post-performance talks, debates and behind the scenes tours.
