The dancers are here and about to rehearse for ROTOR, an ensemble of installations, live works and dance choreographed and presented by Siobhan Davies Dance. I saw the dance in November down at their London studio and was given the task of responding to it with artworks from the Whitworth’s collection. It’s been a brilliant way to explore the collection and I’ve pulled together a broad range of objects including sculpture, prints, drawings, a mobile and even a handkerchief which I hope will strike up a dialogue between the artworks and the performance. Can’t wait to see the dancers perform and looking forward to seeing the gallery in motion. ROTOR opens Friday evening with performances Wednesdays-Sundays until 6 Feb. The collection response runs until 13 March. Come and see!
