William Kentridge: More Sweetly Play the Dance

A spectacular procession of figures, silhouettes, drawings and sculptures make up this video installation by prominent South African artist William Kentridge (born in Johannesburg in 1955). The installation is an 8-screen video, depicting an endless procession in a loop, while brass band music plays in the background.

Inspired by medieval danse macabre and African funeral processions, with the participation of South African dancer and choreographer Dada Masilo, with whom Kentridge often collaborates, More Sweetly Play the Dance, is stirring and evocative in its power, beauty and many allusions.
