Siobhan Davies in Conversation

Siobhan Davies

Dance and Choreography

Thurs 18th Nov 12-1pm

Venue: Bishop Otter Campus: Room LO6
Free admission

In 2000 Siobhan Davies, one of Britain’s major contemporary choreographers, began to extend her dance work beyond traditional theatre venues by creating works for non-proscenium venues, even presenting dance as an “exhibit” within a visual arts setting (Minutes, in The Collection (2009) with the Victoria Miro Gallery). In the Siobhan Davies Studios she has situated dance as a vital force within the arts through her programme of interdisciplinary seminars and visual art exhibitions. Her new online digital library, the first of its kind, presents the trajectory of her work over a period of some 30 years. In conversation with Professor Sarah Rubidge, Davies will discuss developments in her work over the last ten years.
