Physical theatre artists Aaron Cromie and Mary Tuomanen bring you a voyeuristic peek into the world of Belle Epoch painter Henri Toulouse-Lautrec. Suffering from a hereditary bone disorder, Lautrec’s unusual physicality earned him a role as outsider, clown, provocateur and self-appointed archivist of the Parisian underworld. From this unique perspective, The Body Lautrec offers a celebration of human bodies in both art and medicine, told with movement, music and puppetry.

Starts at 7:00 p.m.
Location: Gallery 161

Physical theatre artists Aaron Cromie and Mary Tuomanen bring you a voyeuristic peek into the world of Belle Epoch painter Henri Toulouse-Lautrec. Suffering from a hereditary bone disorder, Lautrec’s unusual physicality earned him a role as outsider, clown, provocateur and self-appointed archivist of the Parisian underworld. From this unique perspective, The Body Lautrec offers a celebration of human bodies in both art and medicine, told with movement, music and puppetry.
