From April 7, to July 22, 2018, Paris Musée Rodin dedicates an exhibition to the relationship between Rodin and dance. By gathering over 50 works around the series of the movements in dance, the exhibition gives us a nice interpretation of the artistic body frozen in time.

Rodin et la dance [Rodin and dance], here’s the exhibition displayed from April 7 to July 22, 2018 at Musée Rodin in Paris. Organized around the series of the 13 Movements in dance in clay brick, the exhibition returns to all Rodin’s researches and experiments around dance. Rodin started to be fascinated by dance in the 1890’s when female dancers from all over the world started new experimentations transforming this art in a less mundane entertainment.

During the Universal Exposition in 1900, Rodin discovered Cambodian dancers and said, “they took the beauty of the world with them”. He made friends with exceptional personalities including Isadora Duncan, Loïe Fuller, Cambodian dancers and Japanese female dancer Hanako.

Expressing life with bodies, translating their vital energy, their balance, their strength, this is the core of Rodin’s creation. we discover some sculptures Rodin imagined to express bodies tensions and faithfully transpose bold portés, between balance and loss of balance as seen in life.
