NYE 2021: Anne Imhof – Patti Smith – Circa New Years special – celebrations begin 23:45 December 31
Patti Smith and her band ring in the New Year with a moving tribute to 100 NHS and healthcare workers who passed away this year from COVID-19. They mark the beginning of her CIRCA 20:21 January with a 15-minute performance at the stroke of midnight on the iconic Piccadilly Lights screen. A gift to London, the city that Smith loves. The event simultaneously streamed on YouTube from 23:45GMT.
In a run-up to midnight, CIRCA presents ‘ONE’ a major new 10-minute commission. It’s by the winner of the Venice Art Biennale 2017, Anne Imhof. Footage filmed at the Tate Modern shown during the artist’s large-scale installation and performance in 2019.
Piccadilly Circus will be washed in the glow of a setting sun. The videos count down to midnight and the arrival of a new year. Also, the Brexit transition period comes to an end at midnight. The solitary and iconic image of Eliza Douglas whipping up the waves on the beaches of Normandy offers a poignant and hypnotising emblem for the ending of the year.
