Centre for Screen Cultures event -- 'Feeling Thing' -- A film screening and conversation with Jo Bannon and Julie Rose Bower

The Centre for Screen Cultures at University of St Andrews is excited to welcome you to our next series of events focussing on Sound and the Body. Our first event of this year is ‘Feeling Thing (online on Teams) at 3-4.30pm on 9th November.

In advance of this event we will screen Jo Bannon's film Feeling Thing (2021), on which she collaborated with sound designer Julie Rose Bower. Feeling Thing will be available to watch online from 2nd-9th November. A vimeo link and password will be emailed to registered attendees.

On 9th November, their conversation will reflect on their artistic practices and collaboration, building on previous events run by the Centre which have explored the creative use of sound, and our current focus on sound and the body.
Feeling Thing invites us to pay attention to the objects around us and experience them as the dancing, feeling things they are. A dance film directed by Jo Bannon for Candoco dance company with sound design by Julie Rose Bower, it features three intimate duets between object and performer, with ASMR sound inviting us into an uncanny space where all things are alive. The concept for the sound was an inclusive sound design that works across sensory difference through a sensibility grounded in touch; touch between performers and their environments and the transitional resonances that sound through persons, objects and spaces.
