At the height of WWl, poet W.B. Yeats collaborated with members of the avant guard his to stage his Japanese noh inspired dance play "At the Hawks Well" (1916). To mark its centennial, Turner Prize winner Simon Starling reinterprets this production in an exhibition that illustrates the impact of noh on Western Modernism. Newly created masks, costumes, and a dance on video are paired with works by the 20th-century masters connected ti Yeat's play, bringing to life Starling's irrepressible inventiveness.
