Simeon Barclay: Bus2Move at The Turnpike is inspired by his research into dance. His interest in dance and its many facets centres on the construction of masculinity, with particular focus on the way popular perceptions and stereotypes become defined, contested and encoded upon the male body.

Barclay undertook a research residency at the internationally renowned Phoenix Dance Theatre based in Leeds to inform the creation of new artwork for the exhibition. Focusing on choreography, sound design, costume, lighting and stage design, this research informed a series of new installations which continue Barclay’s ongoing interest with the complexity of subjectivity and how these states of consciousness are refracted through race, class and received notions of identity.

The exhibition is in partnership with The Tetley, Leeds and Workplace Foundation, Gateshead and has been supported by Arts Council England and Henry Moore Foundation.
