Opens 20 October. Gallery One, Two and Four.
British artist Rachel Kneebone is widely acclaimed for her complex porcelain sculptures that express physical metamorphosis and movement. For her first solo exhibition in the North of England, she will premiere a new series of sculptures and drawings that deepen her investigations into the experience of inhabiting the body. The exhibition will be accompanied by a specially commissioned dance theatre performance by acclaimed choreographer TC Howard. In collaboration with Rachel, acclaimed choreographer TC Howard and dance artists Debbie Milner, Beth Payton and Ellen Turner have worked with a group of women across the Borough of Rochdale to develop a new piece of contemporary dance theatre. Beginning in The Great Hall at Rochdale Town Hall this ensemble piece will reach its finale in Kneebone’s exhibition at Touchstones.
