In July, our friends at 14-18 NOW and Tate presented an ambitious new work, The Head & the Load, by William Kentridge and composer Philip Miller. A sold out audience in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall experienced the world premiere of the work live and now you have a unique opportunity to watch the performance as it happened. The piece explores the largely untold story of the tens of thousands of African porters and carriers during the First World War. The epic work looks back at the global impact of the war at the centenary of Armistice.
