Siobhan Davies Dance and Independent Dance

Siobhan Davies Dance celebrates and seeks to strengthen the role of choreography, dance

and dance artists within contemporary culture. It has evolved over the years from a touring dance company into an investigative contemporary arts organisation which produces and commissions new work.

Independent Dance seeks to play a leading role in establishing and developing an ecology of rigorous, practical enquiry and invigorating ideas-exchange within contemporary dance.
