If Tate Modern was Musée de la danse? took over Tate Modern's Turbine Hall for two days. Three years after his performance of Flip Book at Tate Modern in the Tanks, Boris Charmatz presented a new version with London-based amateurs called Roman Photo. Drawing on Merce Cunningham: Fifty Years (Aperture, 1997) by dance archivist David Vaughan, which charts in pictures Cunningham’s choreography over 50 years, Roman Photo invited a number of dancers, including former members of the company and amateur practitioners, to learn and perform Vaughan’s images as sped-up versions of Cunningham’s language. Hannah Kemp-Welch worked as part of the performance team, rehearsing over a period of 6 weeks, culminating in two performances in the iconic Turbine Hall in May 2015.
