Siobhan Davies Studios, Saint George's Road, London, United Kingdom
Founded and led since 1988 by pioneering choreographer Siobhan Davies CBE, Siobhan Davies Dance has evolved over the years from a national & international touring dance company into a ground-breaking investigative contemporary arts organisation.
Exploring choreography and movement is very much at the heart of everything we do. So whilst we continue to hold our dance roots close we are creatively exploring how to apply choreography across a wide range of disciplines including visual arts, film and craft.
We are a dynamic artist-led organisation and the development and discovery of more contexts within which dance artists can work with impact matters to us greatly. We believe that dance thinking can contribute and lead in a variety of contexts. We work with artists to develop inventive programmes that engage a wide range of audiences, encouraging alternative ways of exploring, experiencing and discussing dance.
In producing and commissioning new work, we often find that the unusual, unexpected and truly wonderful can result from a simple starting point. We are excited about the expanded knowledge, materials and processes that can come out of unorthodox collaborations and are always looking for others to partner with.
Our Studios are a place to connect with others, make new work or relax and maintain a sense of humour. Opening in 2006, Siobhan Davies Studios kick-started an explosion of activity, liberating what we are capable of and allowing us to support the making of far more work. It is important to us that our home is a beacon destination for independent dance experimentation, exploration and discovery hence we are delighted to share this creative space with like-minded organisations such as our close partners Independent Dance.
Our mission is to create, stimulate and develop in order to expand the territory of dance within contemporary society. The essence of all of our activities is the application of choreography in contemporary context to highlight and reveal the relevance of movement in how we live and learn.
