An epic love song written to an art form: ›52 Portraits‹ began life as an online project, but can be seen here in its cinematic version as a 2-hour journey, conjuring an imagined community of artists whose difference clarifies also what connects us. Encompassing artists including William Forsythe, Tim Etchells, Mette Ingvartsen and Eleanor Bauer, each portrait frames its subjects within a self-choreographed gestural language, accompanied by biographical songs, poetically arranged by Matteo and Francesca Fargion, which reveal their passions, politics and doubts. The film seeks to overturn aesthetic hierarchies and open a dialogue between otherwise conflicting approaches, backgrounds and beliefs.

Following this, in the context of an imagined rock concert, performer Katye Coe argues in ›She Dancing‹ towards the spoken agency of the dancer and specifically the dancer’s experience as one where rich information is often held in silence.  ›She Dancing‹ is part of the project ›Music For Lectures‹ that aims to collide academic practice with the actuality of performance and continues Burrows and Fargion's recent work of creating often in proximity and collaboration with somebody else's work.
