Move: Choreographing You

Wednesday 13 October 2010 - Sunday 9 January 2011
Use your mind and body to gain a new understanding of perception this autumn. Move: Choreographing You invites you to become a participant - and in some cases a dancer - in installations and sculptures by internationally renowned visual artists and choreographers from the last 50 years.
Move: Choreographing You explores how dance has been a driving force in the development of contemporary art since the 1960s. Among sculptural works, set pieces and installations, encounter dancers from Laban Contemporary Dance on their own journeys through the galleries. Pick up a hula hoop on the outdoor terrace, watch impromptu performances and go for a spin in the digital archive.
Move is staged in a beautiful sequence of concertina'd screens. The space is designed by Amanda Levete Architects - the same team that created internationally recognised buildings including Selfridges department store in Birmingham and the media centre at Lord's cricket ground.
Move: Choreographing You is curated by Stephanie Rosenthal, Chief Curator of the Hayward Gallery. Featured artists include some of modern and contemporary art's most celebrated artists and choreographers: Tania Bruguera, William Forsythe, Isaac Julien, Mike Kelley, La Ribot, Wayne McGregor, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, Yvonne Rainer, Simone Forti and Trisha Brown.
