Sounds, Visions and Inward Significances – Professor Helen Newall

American writer Susan Sontag has said that “art is a form of consciousness”, and Hélène Cixous that we “annihilate the world with a book”. Exploring the concept of art as a process which enables its makers and observers to approach the unapproachable, Professor Helen Newall will present an interactive performance, using Isadora Duncan’s ethos of ‘“if I could tell you what it meant, there would be no point in dancing it!’”.

Over the past 10 years, Professor Helen Newall has worked closely with Theatre in the Quarter, a unique production company who create theatre and performance art for all ages and aspirations. The chorus from Theatre in the Quarter will feature as part of the lecture, performing songs composed by Professor Newall and the company’s Artistic Director, Matt Baker.

This performative inaugural lecture will culminate with the premiere of Professor Newall’s latest audio-visual installation; projected animations specially created for the event in collaboration with sound artist, Karen Lauke.

Helen Newall is Professor of Theatre Praxis in the Department of Performing Arts at Edge Hill University. She is a writer, director, and digital artist, and her research involves installations, performative documentation and immersivity with a specific interest in commemoration, the First World War and site-responsive community writing. Helen has written for a number of prestigious institutions including The Nuffield Theatre and The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.
