Date & Time: Friday 1 July, 2-5pm
Place: Kingston University, Penrhyn Road, Clattern Lecture Theatre
Organiser: Daniela Perazzo Domm
In collaboration with: Creative Process Research Unit (CPRU), Kingston University
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, followed by a roundtable discussion on themes emerging from the project: collaboration, community and the position of the ‘minor’ in artistic practices.
“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. http://52portraits.co.uk/
The event will include an informal networking session, with drinks and canapés.
Attendance is free but please register for catering purposes.
This event is made possible thanks to the Performance, Screening and Exhibition Fund (PASS, Kingston University).
