See Move: Choreographing You at the Hayward

Your author has always been a big kid when it comes to installation art, and as such the latest offering from the Southbank Centre's Hayward Gallery, titled Move: Choreographing You, is exactly the sort of thing which he likes.

Visitors are offered the chance to interact with a real variety of installations and sculptures by visual artists from around the world. It is great fun, and with hula-hoops, see-saws, climbing rings and ball rooms, you are given opportunities to do things normally reserved for children. The only problem is that they also allow children in.

A highlight for your author was Isaac Julien's Ten Thousand Waves which presents three gripping stories over nine free-hanging screens in a fifty-minute film which draws upon the Morecambe Bay tragedy, when a team of Chinese cockle-pickers perished as tides rose. This, combined with stories from Shanghai and rural China, could have kept the audience there for hours.

For more on the show, which costs £11 and runs until Sunday 9th January 2011, click here.


  1. This sounds like a ton of fun, but I had to laugh at "The only problem is that they also allow children in." :)

  2. Well they already have playgrounds for them!

  3. This looks brilliant! Thanks for pointing it out.
