WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
52 Portraits is an online project created by choreographer Jonathan Burrows, composer Matteo Fargion and video maker Hugo Glendinning, which saw a short gestural portrait of a different dancer released each week throughout 2016. This screening is an opportunity to see them together for the first time. The videos capture the profound, funny and surprising power of their subjects, revealing the stories, thoughts and struggles of dancers in an unexpected way, with an introduction from the co-creators. 52 Portraits is an epic love song written to an art form, supported and produced by Sadler's Wells.
