MILK & BLOOD
MILK & BLOOD
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. ‘It is important to me to continue making works that contribute to the society in which I am living. I want to achieve a personal connection with the audience on multiple levels; to encourage people to contemplate their own experiences and vulnerability in a safe, self-contained space.’ - Franko B (2015)
Milk & Blood will tour the UK and internationally.
