Award winning international choreographer Luke Murphy and renowned sculptor Alex Pentek collaborate on this provocative, atmospheric and energetic dance performance examining the nature of touch, contact and the electricity of our skin. A large installation of foldable origami pieces will be constructed and deconstructed throughout the performance.
Through a sophisticated marriage of imagery and movement Carnivore interrogates contemporary notions of beauty, identity, communication, intimacy, worth and self.
ln collaboration with Kings College London historians Evelyn Welch and Hannah Murphy, the work examines 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.
