William Kentridge: More Sweetly Play the Dance

Next date: Sep 23, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

More than 130 feet long, William Kentridge’s 8-channel video installation, More Sweetly Play the Dance, encircles the viewer. Partly filmed live, partly rendered in Kentridge’s signature animated style, the work covers the walls of a gallery with images of a procession in a blasted landscape. An update of the danse macabre, this parade of death includes a brass band in the lead, followed by people carrying possessions or shrouded bodies, priests, patients dragging their IV drips, skeletons, and a live ballerina (South African dancer Dada Masilo), who wears a military uniform and carries a rifle.

This event requires museum admission.

  • $8 seniors and military;
  • $5 students (13 – 17) and college students (with valid ID);
