52 Portraits

Part of “OUT OF NOW / DANCE ON Festival”


English /  120 min. (continuous admission)

A full 2 hour screening of the 52 Portraits project presents 52 different dance artists from diverse backgrounds and methodologies, directed by Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion, filmed by Hugo Glendinning and with their autobiographies and ideas sung by Matteo and Francesca Fargion. 52 Portraits unpicks the image of the dancer, dissolving conventional hierarchies of style and approach. It is an epic love song to an art form.
