Project Description

2016 marks the 10 year anniversary of the opening of Siobhan Davies Studios. In the past decade the Studios have become a hub for artists to work, create new partnerships and extend the possibilities for dance within the contemporary arts. Founded and led since 1988 by choreographer Siobhan Davies, Siobhan Davies Dance has evolved from a touring dance company into an investigative contemporary arts organisation. By 2002, Davies had moved away from the traditional theatre circuit and started making work for gallery spaces and alternative locations. Recent works have been presented at some of the most prestigious art institutions in the UK, including the ICA and Whitechapel Gallery (London), Turner Contemporary (Margate), Tramway (Glasgow) and Glasgow Museum of Modern Art. Davies works closely with collaborating dance artists to create new work and applies choreography across a wide range of creative disciplines, including visual arts and film.
