52 Portraits

January 26th

Sadler’s Wells, London

John Scott was selected by choreographer Jonathan Burrows to participate in 52 Portraits, a digital project created by Burrows, composer Matteo Fargion and video maker Hugo Glendinning. The project consists of a short gestural portrait of a dancer or performer released every Monday throughout 2016.

Burrows collaborated closely with his subjects to create individual choreographed portraits filmed by Glendinning, while Fargio used their words to create accompanying songs.

“these portraits capture something unique, even mysterious about each dance artist; but they also create an impressionistic portrait of the profession – highlighting the mix of inspiration, fear, delight and freedom the art form engenders, as well as the darker worries about injury, bad performances and money that stalk every career” – Judith Mackrell / The Guardian

52 Portraits is supported and produced by Sadler’s Wells Theatre
