The unique piece is performed by Jeanne Mordoj, who is described as a contortionist, ventriloquist and manipulator of objects and much of her work focusses on eggs. As part of her exploration into the properties of Eggs to enhance her performance, she met with our nutrition science expert Sue Reeves. Sue advised Jeanne on the nutritional aspects of eggs to help inform her research, which helped Jeanne work towards her final performance of La Poème.
