Southbank Centre presents Move: Weekend

26 – 28 November, 2010

Southbank Centre


is a three-day celebration of visual art, dance and performance across Southbank Centre from Friday 26 – Sunday 28 November. The programme is part of the exhibition Move: Choreographing You at the Hayward Gallery, on show until 9 January 2011.The weekend features talks, discussions and performances exploring the historic and current relationship between visual arts, performance and dance. Cognitive scientists Scott deLahunta and David Kirsh are joined by Simone Forti and Sian Ede to discuss how we explore the world with bodies in the context of choreographic practice. Franz Erhard Walther is joined by philosopher of mind Alva Noë and choreographers Yvonne Rainer and Siobhan Davies, to discuss distinctive perceptions of time and space in visual arts and dance. Andre Lepecki leads a discussion foregrounding dance and other structured movement systems as vehicles for political and social critique, with Tania Bruguera, Bojana Cvejic and Xavier Le Roy. Yvonne Rainer talks about her practice evolving from choreography to filmmaking with Chantal Pontbriand. William Forsythe, Tino Sehgal and Janine Antoni discuss what parallels can be drawn between choreography and an extended notion of sculpture.

The performances in the exhibition Move: Choreographing You at the Hayward Gallery include Minutes by Siobhan Davies Dance, Choreography for Blackboards by Michael Kliën and Raise the Roof by Nevin Aladag. Southbank Centre also hosts three UK premiers at Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room: Ilamame Mariachi by La Ribot, Low Pieces by Xavier Le Roy and Anne Collod’s reinterpretation of Anna Halprin’s pioneering work in parades & changes, replays. Simone Forti performs two solo dances on Saturday 26 November.

One of the highlights of the weekend is reinvention of Allan Kaprow’s 18 Happenings in 6 Parts. This seminal work, originally performed in 1959 at the Reuben Gallery in New York, is often credited as the origin of term ‘happening’. Southbank Centre has commissioned choreographer Rosemary Butcher to reinvent the work which will performed in the UK for the first time.

The Move Weekend also includes a two-day free dance workshop led by artist Tino Sehgal, known for his ‘living sculptures’ and ‘constructed situations’.

Day and weekend passes available.
