The work explores varying levels of perceiving and experiencing the body, from the tangible sensations of our own body and the memories that form the stories of our bodies, to the relationships our bodies have with those of others both alive and dead. Choreography and vocal scores are made in response to the site and take inspiration from the, history, form and display of the specimens contained in the anatomy museum.
The project is an interdisciplinary collaboration between Steven Anderson, Laura Bradshaw, John Clark, Laura Gonzalez, Paul Michael Henry and Ruth Pollitt in consultation with the Anatomical Museum Curator Malcolm McCallum and the Anatomy Professor Tom Gillingwater. The work is a development of a Talbot Rice Gallery commission by Steven Anderson in 2015.
