Leading British choreographer Henrietta Hale will collaborate with Baldock on a performance during the final days of the exhibition, as part of Wysing's Annual Open Weekend, 6 & 7 July, 12-6pm, that 'activates' the works. Costumes as sculptures, masks and objects in the exhibition will be worn and used as tools for the performance.
