What you’ll do

Participate in a tour led by researcher Agnese Reginaldo and choreographer Antonio de la Fe that will expand your experience of artworks beyond sight to include movement.

The tour begins in the Reading Room and ends in ‘Misbehaving Bodies’. You will take a close look at selected artworks on display that use the historical practices of danse macabre and memento mori to represent death. Together you will create choreography using a series of gestures inspired by these works.

Please arrive at 10 minutes before the event starts so you may leave your items in the coatroom. The tour will start promptly at 7pm.
