Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Loft

detail of instrument
Celebrating movement in complete stillness.


You enter the gallery, straight ahead, the Conductor is in control, knitting the space together with his baton.
To your left and right bronzed, elongated, life size dancers warm up at the barre.
Musical instruments float, weaving the melodies particular to them.
Sketches over 2m wide depict life in the rehearsal room.
This is an exhibition celebrating movement in complete stillness.
This is Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Loft.
A homage to all that is the performing arts.
Open from 20th October
