'Timepiece' by Conrad Shawcross

If you wanted to watch a play, you would go to the theatre, if you wanted to see art, you would visit a gallery. At least that is what you would normally do. This month, however, the Roundhouse has decided to turn things a bit on their head.

The Bloomberg Summer at the Roundhouse presents Timepiece, an exhibition featuring the artwork of Conrad Shawcross. Actually, to be precise, it is just one piece of art: a giant clock suspended above the main stage. The faceless eight-metre wide installation casts the stage in layers of light and shadow, creating an extremely atmospheric place to perform.

The exhibit is free to view until the 25th August, and throughout its run, there will be talks, dance, and other events. There is no set price for these, and you can pay whatever you wish as an optional donation. The one exception to this is for the London Contemporary Orchestra, which can be booked for the 22nd August and costs 15-35.

Aside from that, you can also see Random Dance by Wayne McGregor, Rotor by Siobhan Davies, Live Lates, and discussions about the Timepiece installation.
