Backhausdance at the Barclay has a great ring to it. On this 9th day of Backhausdance Gratitude, we are thankful for our relationship with Irvine Barclay Theatre. After last season’s sold-out performance, Backhausdance will again be presented by the Barclay and will return to the theatre February 3, 2017 with an evening of mixed repertory featuring powerful, athletic dances; emotionally charged dramatic pieces; and whimsical glimpses of the human experience. We can’t wait to share our newest creations – four premieres on one program – with you!

Since opening in 1990, the Barclay has emerged as one of California’s preeminent performing arts facilities. A unique collaborative venture between the City of IrvineUCI and the private sector, the theatre has a reputation for wide-ranging programming in contemporary dance, music, and theater arts. The 750-seat Irvine Barclay Theatre is nationally-renowned for its great acoustics, intimate feel, and the high quality of its production facilities. Among artists, it is a venue of choice when performing in Southern California.
