A dance performance inspired by the Renaissance Skin project, followed by a panel discussion with Evelyn Welch and the Renaissance Skin team.
ln collaboration with Kings College London historians, Luke Murphy and renowned sculptor Alex Pentek collaborate on this provocative performance installation examining the nature of touch, contact and lifecycle of our skin.
With a large installation of foldable origami pieces constructed and deconstructed throughout the performance, Carnivore interrogates how the central research questions of the Renaissance Skin Project can be applied to contemporary notions of beauty, identity, communication, intimacy, worth and self. Through a series of physical vignettes in dialogue with a constantly evolving spatial context, Carnivore will mine the sensation, expectation, detachment and feeling of the information our skin feeds us at any given moment.
The performance will be accompanied by a drinks reception and followed by a panel discussion with Evelyn Welch.
