UK Premiere for Stuart McCallum's Ballet Score

Guitarist Stuart McCallum will be at the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield this Saturday at 2pm for the UK premiere of his ballet score as part of artist Linder Sterling's new work, The Ultimate Form.

It was first premiered in Paris in January 2013, at the Musée d'Art Modern, as part of Linder's retrospective. As well as the work of Linder herself and Stuart McCallum, fashion designer Richard Nicoll and dancers from the Northern Ballet are also part of the work.

The piece, described as "a fusion of  dance, music, fashion, art, sculpture and landscape" will take place outdoors between 2pm and 4pm.

The Ultimate Form marks the next step in a successful partnership between artist Linder and musician Stuart McCallum. Amongst other works, Stuart collaborated on Linder's 13 hour performace piece The Darktown Cakewalk: Celebrated Live From The House of Fame, which also featured a number of jazz musicians from the North - Kim Macari, Katie Patterson, Peter Lee, Dave Walsh and Linder's son, Max Sterling.

Saturday's event is free to attend but booking is essential.

Book tickets for The Ultimate Form.
