Tate Modern: Michael Clark Company - New Work
London - JUN 01, 2011

In June, Michael Clark Company will present the world premiere of a new commission for the Turbine Hall, following the company's public residency last summer: a unique situation in which visitors were able to watch the choreographic process unfold.

The iconic British artist and choreographer will work with movement, film, light and sound to create a site-specific event, responding to the monumental architecture of the Turbine Hall and the context of the museum. Having used the first part of the project as an opportunity to explore and experiment, Michael Clark has built upon this research to create a new work, in collaboration with Charles Atlas and Stevie Stewart.

In conjunction with this event, a film screening will be presented featuring work by Michael Clark's contemporaries, Cerith Wyn Evans and John Maybury.
