Schools and colleges are invited to the Whitworth on Wednesday 2 February 2011 1- 4 pm to see and make observational drawings of the performance of ROTOR.
“A chance to make great figurative drawings from life”
Dance, sound, sculpture, film, poetry and more all come together at the Whitworth Art Gallery in ROTOR, a boundary-crossing ensemble performance and exhibition by Siobhan Davies Dance. Inspired by a performance choreographed by Siobhan Davies and filmed from overhead, eight artists including the Turner-prize nominated Angela de la Cruz, composer Matteo Fargion and ceramicist Clare Twomey have each created work that connects with ideas around repetition, disorder and circularity. The arrival of ROTOR at the Whitworth has also prompted a selection from the Whitworth’s own art collection. Works by artists such as Barbara Hepworth, Albrecht Dürer, Langlands & Bell and Anthony Caro are presented as exhibited objects in dialogue with live, dynamic performance.
