Review by Miriam La Rosa for Curating the Contemporary, October 2015

MILK & BLOOD - performance in Norwich


Franko B will perform MILK & BLOOD at Norwich Arts Centre (UK)
Wednesday 21st October 2015, 8:00 PM
Book tickets >

Internationally recognised as a leading performance artist, Franko B uses his body as a democratic tool to explore notions of the personal, political and poetic, resistance and the transcendence of suffering. 

Milk & Blood appropriates the aesthetics of boxing for twelve two minute rounds of mental and physical endurance. Exploring pain, eroticism, revulsion, ecstasy and masculinity, the performance becomes a metaphor for social struggle and the fragility of human existence.
