Choreographer Joe Moran brings a new collection of live performance and installation to Nottingham Contemporary. Each work is a daring and very different response to the question ‘What can dance say, today?’.
Choreography in galleries, full-bodied dancing, stillness, virtuosity and overblown masculinity all come under inspection in this arresting collection of works. Durational performance installations happen throughout the day, punctuated by performances reimagined for the gallery every hour and a half.
Joe performs his compelling solo Decommission, presented alongside the bold all-male ensemble, Arrangement and celebrated trio Obverse, commissioned for The Place Prize for dance sponsored by Bloomberg. BAFTA award-winning sound artist Kaffe Matthews performs live and nine local performers join the installation work The Body.
Audiences are invited to come and go throughout the afternoon, navigating their own journey through the work
