Exercises in Empathy: an exhibition at the Site Gallery, Sheffield 25 July – 5 September 2015


In case you are around Sheffield at the moment, there is still time to see the exhibition Exercises in Empathy at the Site Gallery featuring choreutic models, photographs and documents from the Laban Archive, pictured above. The exhibition ‘explores how the body senses objects and responds to concepts and ideas through touch and movement. Photographs, film, sculpture and archival materials show how inner and outer worlds blur into each other. Acts of repetition, mirroring and meditation are used to examine the space between sensing and knowing, doing and thinking’ (Quoted from the Site Gallery website, 2015). Sara Cluggish, the curator of the exhibition, which also features the work of Daria Martin and Ian Whittlesea, reports that it has been very well received which is great news, so catch it if you can.



All the beautiful photographs are by Julian Lister.

Laban Building at Creekside 10th anniversary exhibition

Time is nearly up to catch the Laban Building at Creekside’s 10th anniversary exhibition. So if you think you are going to miss it, have at look at what you missed!


Ian Peppiatt, our amazing IT/AV advisor, has curated a multimedia show of clips, photographs and interviews tracing the construction and launch of our beautiful building designed by Herzog & de Meuron.


And we are displaying some objects from the archive including an architectural model of the building which is remarkably similar to the actual full-scale one!

The exhibition is currently on display outside the Laban Library and Archive in the Laban Building at Creekside. It comes down on Wed 20 November so hurry if you want to see it!
