Conrad Shawcross: TimepieceA vast, eight-metre, faceless clock is suspended above the main Roundhouse space from 1st to 25th August 2013. Timepiece by Conrad Shawcross is a major new commission which uses the architecture of the iconic Camden building as its source of inspiration, responding to the 24 columns of the main space to mark the hours of our day. The result is an installation which acts as a light sculpture, flooding the space with intricate layers of light and shadow. To tie in with the installation, acclaimed choreographer Wayne McGregor has created an interactive dance piece, Azimuth, performed by dancers from his Random Dance company where they perform in the shadows of the installation on the following Sunday afternoons in August: 4th, 11th and 25th, from 2pm to 5pm.

 

About Roundhouse

It's great to see this fabulous arts venue re-open its doors after a stunning refurbishment. Boasting a colourful history, the Roundhouse initially started life as an engine shed. It was later transformed into a bonded warehouse for Gilbey's Gin before Arnold Wesker the playwright came along in 1964 and established Centre 42 here, insisting it became one of the most cutting-edge performing arts venue in the country.
