Allora / Calzadilla - Revolving Door

Museum Arnhem, The Netherlands

Revolving Door is an ongoing performance troughout the opening hours of the museum consisting of two rows of dancers who simulate the movement of a revolving door. The visitor can interact with this performance, as if it were an actual revolving door – a door that often forms a part of the semi-public space of buildings. Sometimes these authoritarian structures command how we move through space and break with our natural rhythm. By interweaving gestures from the local history of barricades and marches, Revolving Door creates an experience of the power play inherent to moving masses, intimidating the individual who believes to be moving freely through space.
