Duke of York Steps
London SW1Y 5AH
The Duke of York Steps are a majestical set of three tiers of steps that run from Waterloo Place just below Piccadilly Circus to The Mall. They take their name from the Duke of York Column, a monument to Prince Frederick, Duke of York and Albany (the second son of King George III), found at the top of the steps. The column was designed by Benjamin Dean Wyatt in 1832, and the bronze statue by Sir Richard Westmacott in 1834.
Linder presents a new durational performance for the Duke of York Steps next to the ICA in homage to architects Alison and Peter Smithson’s House of the Future and the iconic 1970s film Donkey Skin by Jacques Demy. It will combine dance, music, performance, costume and imagery, creating a live tableaux on the stage of the stairs – forming a contemporary fairy tale that considers transformation as a state of mind.
