ROTOR at Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester: Whitworth Art Gallery
28 Jan – 6 Feb 2011

The Whitworth

Siobhan Davies Dance present ROTOR, an inter-disciplinary ensemble of installations and live works at the Whitworth Art Gallery. 

Turner Prize 2010 shortlisted artist Angela de la Cruz, composer Matteo Fargion and ceramicist Clare Twomey are among the artists featured in a show that combines dance, sound, art, poetry and more. ROTOR begins with a choreography of circles and knots performed by Siobhan Davies Dance artists. Filmed from overhead, this in turn becomes the trigger for eight commissioned artists to create their own pieces that connect with ideas around repetition, disorder and renewal. ROTOR has also prompted a selection from the Whitworth’s own art collection, with works by artists such as Barbara Hepworth and Albrecht Dürer presented in dialogue with live, dynamic performance.

‘a bracingly simple idea, mesmerising to watch’ Jenny Gilbert, The Independent on Sunday
