Ruth Direktor, curator of the exhibition: “William Kentridge and More Sweetly Play the Dance”

A stunning cortege of figures, silhouettes and sculptures comprises William Kentridge’s (b. 1955, Johannesburg) video installation, moving in a cyclical neverending procession along eight screens, accompanied by a brass band. Among the marching, dancing, playing figures is South African dancer Dada Masilo, who collaborates with Kentridge in his work. Inspired by medieval danse macabre and African funeral processions, More Sweetly Play the Dance is a powerfully beautiful and stirring work, raising a multitude of references.

The exhibition was made possible thanks to the generosity of Wendy Fisher and A4 Arts Foundation
