More Sweetly Play the Dance

‘More Sweetly Play the Dance’ by William Kentridge is shown across the walls of a room. Featuring a slow progression of shadowy figures walking to a haunting tune played by a brass brand, it includes skeletons, generals being pulled along on platforms by bent-over women, dancers in traditional African dress, people on medical drips and a religious procession.

All hint at the human and natural crises that force people to flee their homes and walk long distances: hunger, floods, poverty, war. The effect is stunning in its sights and sounds –and in its humanity. Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art, Capetown, South Africa.

A positive way of showing a very challenging time.
