Laura Wilson, You would almost expect to find it warm, 2018. Co-commissoned by Block Universe and Franck Bordese.
On Friday 1 June, 4-8pm in the Great Hall at the British Museum I am presenting You would almost expect to find it warm (2018), a new a site-specific performance using dance and fresh dough as an interplay of two living organisms operating in a constant flow of movement.
With an uncanny resemblance to human flesh and marble, the material and choreography of the performers draws parallels between the sculptures of Auguste Rodin, and those of the Parthenon, in response to the exhibition Rodin and the art of ancient Greece at the British Museum.
You would almost expect to find it warm (2018) will be performed by Elina Akhmetova, Kirsty Arnold, Iris Chan, Adam Moore, Daniel Persson and Piedad Seiquer. With thanks to Yeast Bakery.
Co-commissioned by Block Universe and Franck Bordese.
