Tate Modern - Dance Performance - July 2016
What would it mean for choreography to perform as an exhibition? This question formed the starting point for Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s latest ground-breaking work at Tate Modern. I was contracted to production and stage manage the complete project.
The video captured above was taken from her 2012 opening and in 2016 her performance expanded to the Turbine Hall - with dancers performing continuously amongst the public. Audience members were encouraged to sit in and around the dancers on the dance floor and interact with the works.
