Examine a series of dancing works and sculptures by Auguste Rodin, discovered in the artist's studio after his death in 1917, with Rodin & Dance: The Essence of Movement at The Courtauld Gallery.

Gain an insight into the evolution of dance forms in Paris at the turn of the 20th century, through the modern master's terracotta and plaster sculptures.

Showcasing figures in twisted and extended poses, the exhibition features Rodin’s once-hidden experimental sculptures alongside fascinating drawings of performers from the Royal Cambodian dance troupe and other private models.
