This site-specific performance uses 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.

Visual artist Laura Wilson is interested in how history is carried and evolved through everyday materials, trades and craftsmanship. She develops sculptural and performative works that amplify the relationship between materiality, memory and embodied knowledge.

This performance is part of Block Universe, London’s International Performance Art Festival, taking place across London from 26 May to 3 June 2018.

You would almost expect to find it warm is a site-specific commission from Block Universe and Franck Bordese, with the support of the British Museum and Arts Council England.
