Saturday September 21 (10am-5pm) A SUN DANCE

Tate St Ives is delighted to be working with Australian artist Rochelle Haley for the UK premiere of A Sun Dance.
An ensemble of international and Southwest based dancers and a musician will follow the path of the sun as it passes across and through the Tate St Ives building on the equinox weekend.
At its core, the work is a relation between dancer, sunlight, sound, and architecture. They will create kaleidoscopic shapes and contemplative movement and sound for audiences to encounter throughout the day.
Free with gallery admission, Locals Pass or Tate Membership. Aged 18 and under admitted free.
