William Kentridge: More Sweetly Play the Dance

700 N. Art Museum Dr.
Milwaukee, WI 53202

Combining drawing, filmmaking, and animation with a spirited soundtrack, William Kentridge: More Sweetly Play the Dance engages viewers in a joyous danse macabre that speaks to issues around life, death, migration and displacement. The innovative work features a parade of figures, led by a brass band, projected on giant HD screens that will run the length of the Museum’s Baker/Rowland Galleries.

The figures march against a background of the artist’s drawings, activated through stop-motion animation, and bullhorn-style speakers provide the animated soundtrack.
