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.
Mobile Meadow Seedling Walk
The Mobile Meadow Seedling Walk began from two locations;
The Mobile Gardeners Park and Siobhan Davies Studios on the 29th June 2014.
For three months the Meadow has been quietly growing in pots and beds in and around Elephant & Castle.
As the plants came into flower, Movement Artist Simon Whitehead and Guerrilla Gardener Richard Reynolds invited participants to take a silent choreographed walk with them to 'Mobilise the Meadow'. En-route they planted a Guerrilla Meadow in the heart of Elephant & Castle.
This walk was part of 'Human Nature: Art, horticulture & choreography across the growing season' curated by Alison Proctor and Vicky Long.
Manual at Turner Contemporary, 2014
A live work by choreographer Siobhan Davies, made with solo dance artist, Helka Kaski, 8-11 May 2014 at Turner Contemporary.
Kaski invites audience members to help her carry out a familiar action by giving her a series of verbal instructions, for example standing up from a lying-down position. As they work together to complete the task, it becomes clear that what at first may appear easy, is actually complex and extraordinary, often causing amusement and bemusement.
