12 Degrees North: CLASS
performanceposted on 06.10.2020 by Helen Newall
The presentation of a theatrical play or music concert within a fine art context.
Practice-Research: dance performance documentation by Helen Newall, as part of the 12◦ North project: Visual Literacy and the Emerging Artist (2014+) with Karen Jaundrill-Scott. The 12◦ North Company initiative served to support the cultural economy in the Northern Powerhouse by incubating early career practitioners whose contribution would be critical in the sustainability of the regional dance ecology. The work builds upon Jaundrill-Scott’s previous ACE consultancy, ‘Towards a Graduate Company’ (Jaundrill-Scott, K., & Cullen, L., 2009). The project had four phases of dissemination which developed as the work progressed, and consisted of work with still imagery and documentary reflection: Newall produced the photographs which constitute the exhibition of still images, Class; Rehearse; Perform, out of which comes Newall’s discourse on dance performance imagery, and which informed the narrative of Jaundrill-Scott’s first film Do You See What I See?, concerning the deployment of still imagery as a tool for promoting increased self-awareness in emerging dance artists.
