Alexis Marguerite Teplin: "P and C"

Performance in the context of the exhibition "Sacré 101"

24.04.2014, 19:00


7 and 8 pm

(free admission, performance duration approx. 20 minutes)


Alexis Marguerite Teplin's artistic practice often combines painting and sculpture with performance. Teplin's work P and C is inspired by the search undertaken by Ballets Russes to find new forms of expression, as seen in the piece Le Sacre du Printemps, which was specially composed for this Russian ballet ensemble. In P and C, two actors and the artist act in a burlesque manner, thus thematizing various aspects of Le Sacre du Printemps and weaving an extensive web of references – from Oscar Wilde's Salome, to Man Ray, to Martha Graham, right through to Ken Russell's film Isadora (1966).
P and C is Teplin's second performance work; her first, The Party, was commissioned by London's Serpentine Gallery.

Actors: Jamie Bradley (UK), Bettina Carpi (UK), Alexis Marguerite Teplin (UK)
