#ArtistInsights Julian Maynard Smith
Welcome to the first of our Artist Insights series, featuring Julian Maynard Smith of Station House Opera, interviewed by Performance Editor Diana Damian-Martin.
Julian Maynard Smith is the founder and artistic director of Station House Opera. Founded in 1978, Station House Opera creates solo and group performance work as well as sculpture and installation.
Dissolved is the company’s first new work since the city scale site specific project Dominoes in 2009 and follows earlier intercontinental performances developed as far back as 2004. Their distinctive engagement with audiences crosses new boundaries with an installation and performance that uses live video streaming to dissolve spaces in London and Berlin, bringing people from both cities into dynamic connection.
Artist Insights is a collaboration between Artsadmin and online magazine Exeunt, bringing together an artist or collective with a critical writer. Drawing on the wide range of artists and practices that Artsadmin supports, the series provides an overview of different artistic processes, contexts and histories, using current projects as starting points.
Dissolved runs from 6-22 March 2014.
