William Kentridge: The Refusal of Time

The Iziko South African National Gallery in association with the Goodman Gallery will host The Refusal of Time (made in collaboration with Philip Miller, Catherine Meyburgh, Dada Masilo and Peter Galison), a 5-channel video installation with a moving sculpture and immersive soundscape.

 

At the Cape Town City Hall, Design Indaba in association with the Goodman Gallery, will present two performances of the chamber opera Refuse the Hour (made in collaboration with Philip Miller, Catherine Meyburgh, Dada Masilo and Peter Galison), a journey to the limits of science, ontology and cosmology with an international cast of eleven, including dancers, musicians, performers and vocalists, with Kentridge himself and the dancer Dada Masilo at its centre (26 – 27 February at 20h30). Refuse the Hour is the theatrical accompaniment to the five-channel film installation The Refusal of Time. This performance laid the groundwork for the installation that premiered at Documenta(13) in Kassell, Germany, in 2012. Get tickets to Refuse the Hour HERE.

 

As part of Design Indaba Conference, Kentridge will present a new lecture/performance, including a live musical performance at the Cape Town Convention Centre on 27 February at 15h30. Tickets to Design Indaba Conference are available HERE.

 

The Soho Chronicles: 10 Films by William Kentridge is a new book written by the artist’s brother, Matthew Kentridge about William’s series of 10 Drawings for Projection (1989 – 2011). William and Matthew will be in conversation about The Soho Chronicles: 10 Films by William Kentridge on 28 February at 15h00 at Design Indaba Expo, followed by a book signing.
