The latest exhibition at Tate Britain entitled ’Pablo Bronstein: Historical Dances in an Antique Setting’ is the most ambitious project to date by this Argentina-born British artist. Bronstein, is well known for creating satirical performances which fuse modern and historical elements, whilst connecting art and society. This exhibition takes inspiration from this neo-classical surroundings of the Duvee Galleries and Bronstein's interest in the Baroque period from which he has created a continuous live performance. Dancers move through the galleries, whilst interacting with the architectural elements of their surroundings. This exhibition is so much more, its an experience and one that deserves not to be missed!

London Bridge, South Bank, Borough and Bermondsey:

Every once in a while we all like to have a boogie with our friends, but having to scream at them over the music can get a bit tedious! Well, not any more. Now you can get the best of both worlds at the Silent Disco at the Shard. Clubbers are supplied headphones for the evening, where they can tune in to one of two different music channels, courtesy of two DJ's vying for your ears. When you feel like having a chat, simply take off the headphones and carry on your conversation whilst watching everyone dancing in silence and trying to remember to the words of songs playing on their sets...it's highly entertaining!
