Warmed Air is a site-specific performance within the Anatomy Department of Edinburgh University. Performing with and for cadaveric specimens within the Anatomical Museum, the work explores levels of perceiving and experiencing the body; from the tangible sensations of one’s own body and the memories that form the stories of our bodies, to the relationships our bodies have with the bodies of others, both alive and dead.
The project is an interdisciplinary collaboration devised by Laura Gonzalez, Laura Bradshaw, Paul Michael Henry and Steven Anderson in consultation with Anatomy Professor Tom Gillingwater and Anatomical Museum Curators Malcolm McCallum and Ruth Pollitt. This new performance is a development from work made by Steven Anderson during
a Talbot Rice Gallery commission in 2015.
