The SLG presents the UK premiere of a new commission by the LA and Berlin-based choreographer, dancer and visual artist Adam Linder. The most ambitious of his choreographic “services” to date, No.5: Dare to Keep Kids Off Naturalism extends for fifty hours across ten days as four performers occupy the SLG’s main gallery, utilising modular costumes to create ever-changing architectonic formations that reconsider the relationship between their theatrical sensibility and the exhibition space. Linder’s practice explores the notion of choreography as an economically viable public service in the form of physical, performed labour, drawing on the disciplinary sensibilities of visual arts and its inscribed histories.
See for performance times.
Service No.5: Dare to Keep Kids Off Naturalism is a co-production of South London Gallery and Kunsthalle Basel.

Since October 2017 artist Rory Pilgrim has been developing an ambitious new commission for the SLG in collaboration with a group of women aged 22 – 94, who live and work locally, and young women from the Harris Girls Academy, East Dulwich. Titled 'The Resounding Bell', the work takes the form of a series of films which centre around otherwise unheard stories of care, community, migration, technology and war that emerged over the course of the year-long commission. The films will be screened in the Fire Station Studio and will culminate with a final episode which will be broadcast live between a location in the local neighbourhood and the SLG.
The Resounding Bell is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
