Feet of Clay: Rodin and his London Friends

The friends Rodin meets in the British Museum take him on a journey through time, visiting past ordeals and future triumphs.

The French sculptor Auguste Rodin loved the British Museum and visited it whenever he could to sketch the Parthenon sculptures.  In the play some of the friends he meets in the Museum take him on a journey through time.  Past ordeals and future triumphs are conjured up before his – and the audience’s – eyes.

Commissioned by the British Museum, and performed there on 18 May 2018 by actors Lloyd Morris, Lisa Ronaghan and Matthew Coulton, with music from the Waldegrave Ensemble.  Rob McIndoe directed.
