Huntley Muir: the inspiration behind Motel

Best Independent Company (National Dance Awards) Rosie Kay Dance Company bring us an exciting double bill – Double Points: K & Motel. In anticipation of the performance let’s take a look at the inspiration behind MotelHuntley Muir‘s series of Rooms paintings.

Motel is dark, sexy and theatrical. A woman in a room. A man in another room. Are we looking at their future together, or are we witnessing memories of their destructive, dangerous, delicious past? Motel explores the nothing spaces we inhabit that hold our lives, the time and space in between real life, where illicit affairs occur, and secret relationships play out, which evoke our deep, sensuous emotions. This brand new work by leading UK choreographer Rosie Kay, showcases her sense of macabre, exquisite movement and dark, black humour. 

Based out of The Barbican, London, Huntley Muir are an artist duo experimenting across a wide range of mediums, working in digital imaging, multimedia collaboration, painting, drawing, graphics, illustration, video animation, set design and installation. Below are a selection of images from the Rooms collection.

Catch Double Points: K & Motel on Thursday 20 October, 7:30pm.
