52 Portraits, an on-going collaborative project: a conversation

Join us for a screening of selected video works from the online digital project 52 Portraits by choreographer Jonathan Burrows, composer Matteo Fargion and video maker Hugo Glendinning - in conversation with Adrian Heathfield and Sarah Whatley.

52 Portraits is an on-going collaborative project: it began on 4 January 2016 and has seen the release, every Monday of the year, of a new video portrait of a performance artist, between well-known and emerging figures. Each short gestural solo is accompanied by Matteo and Francesca Fargion singing the autobiography and ideas of the person we see dancing. 52 Portraits is supported and produced by Sadler's Wells.

The screening will be followed by a roundtable discussion on themes emerging from the project: collaboration, community and the position of the ‘minor' in artistic practices. We welcome invited speakers, Prof Adrian Heathfield and Prof Sarah Whatley.

The evening will also include an informal networking session, with drinks and canapés.

This event is made possible thanks to the Performance, Screening and Exhibition Fund (School of Performance and Screen Studies) and is organised in collaboration with the Creative Process Research Unit (CPRU), Kingston University.
