The Peabody Essex Museum will present 101 days of modern gestural performance to accompany one of the must-see exhibitions of the summer, Rodin: Transforming Sculpture. Dancers from the BoSoma Dance Company of Peabody, Mass will respond to the sculptures by Auguste Rodin, many of which include masterpieces such as “The Thinker,” “The Kiss” and “The Hand of God.”

Rodin: Transforming Sculpture is organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in collaboration with the Musée Rodin and will feature 175 works—bronzes, marbles, plasters and stoneware. Some of the works in the exhibit include rare studio plasters, many never before seen in North America.

BoSoma Dance Company will perform daily from 11 am to 4:30 pm for the entire duration of the exhibition – May 14 through September 5, 2016.
