motor dance journal warmly invites you to the launch of its first print publication. The Solo considers the creative, personal and social possibilities of dancing on one’s own. It features a diverse array of dancers, artists, curators and writers, including Gillian Wearing, Catherine Wood, Siobhan Davies, Rose English, Lucinda Chua, Candela Capitán, Stephanie LaCava and many more, on themes as varied as the choreographies of cruising, to paparazzi shots of Brittany Murphy outside a ballet class.

The launch will feature readings from motor contributors Philippa Snow and Jack Parlett.

The evening will also be the first opportunity to view and purchase the publication. It is 160 pages, recycled paper, and litho (colour).
motor is a magazine dedicated to dance and writing about dance. It aims to expand and interrogate how dance is framed and make it more accessible to wider audiences. motor explores the choreographic potentiality of writing about dance and gives dance a space of critical endurance.
