Last year, photographer Nick Knight was the artist chosen for Veuve Clicquot’s first Series. This time, FKA twigs is the artist in charge of writing, directing and curating ROOMS, her collaborative project in this year’s Series.

ROOMS has been described by FKA twigs herself as one of her most ambitious to date, where she can make her wildest creative ideas a reality. She describes it as a journey through the zodiac in search of her spiritual home, and promises it will be a multi-faceted experience involving an incredible set of designers, artists, dancers, choreographers, performance artists, actors, costumes, and makeup. It will comprise a cast of 30 within 12 installations, showing the work of different artists which will immerse the audience in every emotion, using dance, song and horror of the human emotion.

This second Veuve Clicquot Series is a tribute to Madame Clicquot on the 150th anniversary of her death. She was widowed young and had to take over her husband’s business, which she transformed into one of the most prestigious champagne brands in the world. She was a visionary with an incredible spirit of achievement, who developed crucial innovations in the champagne industry, such as the riddling table that enabled the production of the clear, non-cloudy champagne that we drink today, as well as the creation of Rosé champagne.

Due to the size of the space where ROOMS takes place, there are limited tickets. Before they go on public sale, there will be some made privately available on Monday, 10th October 13:00 UK time, via dice. You just have to register and download the app, following the instructions you will find in these links, and you will get a reminder before the tickets become available on Monday.

27th October Tickets

The Castle at the Space: SEEN Reviews

SEEN was not that familiar with the work of Howard Barker prior to seeing ‘The Castle’ but feels she must rectify that situation. A powerful piece on the nature of masculinity, war, gender roles and the essential unreliability of religious faith, ‘The Castle’ benefits from a powerhouse cast and a stripped-back set, making the most of the Space’s environment.
