You Would Almost Expect to Find it Warm, 2018

You would almost expect to find it Warm’ is a four-hour performance which 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 sculptures of ancient Greece.

Co-commissioned by Block Universe and Franck Bordese, the performance was presented at the British Museum, London and in parallel with Rodin and the Art of Ancient Greece curated by Ian Jenkins co-organised with Musée Rodin, Paris.

Performed by: Elina Akhmetova, Kirsty Arnold, Iris Chan, Adam Moore, Daniel Persson and Piedad Seiquer.
