Exhibition Michael Clark: Cosmic Dancer.
Opening Saturday 26 February until 4 September 2022.

The first ever major exhibition on Michael Clark, the groundbreaking Scottish dancer and choreographer.

Born in Aberdeen in 1962, Clark began traditional Scottish dancing at the age of four. In 1975 he left home to study at the Royal Ballet School in London. As a young choreographer, Clark brought together his classical ballet training with London's punk, fashion and club culture to establish himself as one of the most innovative artists working in contemporary dance.

Exhibition curated and organised by Barbican Centre, London.
