RODIN: TRANSFORMING SCULPTURE with BoSoma Dance Company
The Peabody Essex Museum and BoSoma present 101 days of gestural performance in the museum’s headlining exhibition. Dancers will respond to sculptures by Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), including masterpieces such as “The Thinker,” “The Kiss” and “The Hand of God.” Performances will take place daily from 11am to 4:30pm for the entire run of the exhibition.
Whether working in plaster, marble or bronze, Rodin captured the emotional and psychological complexities of the human experience in ways that few sculptors have achieved, before or since. Pairing sculptures with movement in the gallery will heighten the emotional experiences of the sculptures and allow for another entry point into considering aspects of the human form and how Rodin was inspired by the body.
Dancers will juxtapose human limbs, joints and muscular forms with sculpted body parts in performances woven into the exhibition.
