Tate Live: Michael Clark Company's Residency In Turbine Hall

Posted: Updated:

For Part I of his choreographic project at Tate Modern, Michael Clark and his company have been resident in the Turbine Hall for seven weeks, making the development and rehearsal of his work publicly visible for the first time.

The Company's presence has transformed the monumental space into an arena for experimentation and practice, foregrounding the processes -- both artistic and practical -- behind making and performing Clark's work.
