In this Apollo podcast, Thomas Marks talks to the South African artist William Kentridge as his performance project, The Head & the Load, has its world premiere at Tate Modern. Kentridge discusses how the piece strives ‘to register and record’ the experience of Africa during the Great War, and to commemorate the African soldiers, carriers and civilians who lost their lives in the conflict. Scroll down for images of The Head & the Load in rehearsal.

The Head & the Load is at Tate Modern until 15 July. The performance will be available to watch on the Tate website from 21 July until 20 August.
