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.
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.
Daniel Linehan (born 1982, New York), is a Brussels based dancer and choreographer whose practice often explores the boundaries and commonalities between dance and non-dance forms through recorded and projected video images. His most recent works include Montage for Three 2009, Being Together Without Any Voice 2010, and Zombie Aporia 2011. Linehan is currently an Artiste Associé 2012–14 at deSingel (Antwerpen, BE), New Wave Associate 2012–14 at Sadler’s Wells London and Artist-in-Residence at l’Opéra de Lille, France, since January 2013.
