From 29 September to 1 October 2017, the Museum of Science and Industry will welcome performance artist, Nikhil Chopra. Chopra will create a one-off, 48 hour performance based around steam locomotive 3157 in the museum’s Power Hall. The engine, built in 1911 at Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside was exported to countries of the former British Empire. Serving on the North Western Railway of India this locomotive was transferred to Pakistan Railways after Partition in 1947 where it ran until 1982. This historic object will form the symbolic centre of Chopra’s performance. Famous for long-duration performance pieces, Chopra’s work will include changing costumed personas; intricate, detailed graphic drawing; and live music by DJ, Masta Justy. Open 24 hours a day visitors will be able to watch Chopra’s piece at any time during the weekend.
