Jack Honeysett’s practice is focused on what happens in the gulf between a performer’s body and the audience’s mind. Highlighting what happens in the process of bringing performance to a fine art audience with video, often by re-invigorating a performance video by imbuing it with physicality in the space. Turning the 2D human characters into architectural space, or combining two or more videos that talk harmoniously together in a space.

Honeysett’s recent work has been focusing on the vernacular folk performances of the Morris, breaking up Morris dancing into its constituent parts to play with his audience’s preconceptions and methods of engagement with English folk dance, contemporary dance and performance art.

Birdman:

Fred’s quest into the underworld for a spirit to guide him through this life.

Jack’s search for a new interpretation for narrative in motion picture.

COMPETITIONS:

Fred and Jack fight it out in a series of bouts to determine who is the strongest, fittest and fastest.

Caveman:

The Epic quest for the company of another human being by a lonely caveman.

Morris:

Ever wished you had another arm? In this experiment i tested what would

happen if i danced with myself. I thought i had created the greatest morris

team known to man, but i had created a monster.
