Paso Doble
On from 16 Jan 2008 till 19 Jan 2008
by Miquel Barceló and Josef Nadj

About: Paso Doble

Ten tons of wet clay become a playground for an artist and a choreographer in this adventurous collaboration. With startling physicality the two performers axe, sling, slap, shape and reshape the soft clay, using giant tools and their own bodies to produce amazing shapes and structures.

Exploring the act of artistic creation itself, Paso Doble gives a vivid and visceral glimpse into the obsessions, anxieties and excitement experienced by artists in the process of making unconventional new work. Coated in clay like living sculptures, the two performers are almost absorbed into their canvas– themselves a part of the endless work-in-progress.

Josef Nadj is an internationally celebrated dancer and choreographer, and artistic director of the Centre Choreographique National d'Orleans. His previous UK appearances include two productions for the London International Mime Festival. In 2006 he was Associate Artist of the Avignon Festival.

Miquel Barceló is one of Spain's foremost contemporary artists. He has recently been awarded prestigious commissions to decorate the cathedral in Palma, Majorca, and the United Nations building in Geneva.

Presented in association with the London International Mime Festival.
