Anyone with a fear of audience participation might be tempted to sidestep the Hayward’s autumn show. Titled with the imperative “Move,” it examines— and invites—interaction, via the lens of choreography. Unusual for an exhibition exploring the intersection of dance and art—a theme quite popular of late— “Move” puts the viewer “onstage” among installations, enacting performances from the past six decades by a variety of artists including Pablo Bronstein, Trisha Brown (whose company is in residence at Southbank Centre this fall), Tania Bruguera, Boris Charmatz, Lygia Clark, Simone Forti, Mike Kelley, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, and Tino Sehgal. In parallel, Yvonne Rainer—who famously wrote, “No to moving or being moved,” in 1965—has a film retrospective at the British Film Institute next door.
