“Je suis belle”: Rodin in Movement at NCMA

Taking inspiration from Rodin’s bronze statue of the same title (itself an homage to Charles Baudelaire’s poem “La beauté and part of NCMA’s permanent collection), French dancer and choreographer Murielle Elizéon and fellow choreographer Tommy Noonan will perform a duet exploring the kinetic power of Rodin’s work at the North Carolina Museum of Art on November 4, 5 & 11. The two artists are part of Culture Mill, an artist-driven nonprofit from Saxapahaw, NC.

Focusing on Rodin’s unparalleled ability to infuse life and tension into his renderings of the human form, the work also explores the artist’s relationship with his lover and collaborator, fellow sculptor Camille Claudel. It imagines Rodin’s sculptures as fluid living works which provide insight into the dynamic human relationships that influenced their creation. NC-based sound-artist Ben Trueblood also contributes to the project with a real-time sculptural rendering of time, bodies and sound.

There will be three performances daily on the hour beginning at 1:00 P.M. Each performance lasts approximately 20 minutes and is free to the public
