Daniel Linehan – BMW Tate Live: Performance Room

A second chance to watch Daniel Linehan’s performance of untitled duet captured live Thursday, 12 December, 2013 at Tate Modern. For the final Performance Room event of 2013 Daniel Linehan presents a new performance, untitled duet. Linehan and another dancer, Anneleen Keppens read from a prepared script whilst performing hundreds of meticulously designed movements.

The dance accentuates all of the strange rhythms hiding within everyday speech: the hesitancies, interruptions, and stutters. Its aim, as in any good conversation, is to generate a continual emergence of difference.

Performance Room is a series of performances commissioned and conceived exclusively for the online space. Performances are streamed live from the Performance Room at Tate Modern and then made available to watch online after the event.
