Davies' work observes tactical measures by which society and territory are organised and controlled. Produced during a residency at Yorkshire Artspace Society and Sheffield Town Hall and funded by the Arts Council and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Commonwealth shifts focus between three distinct types of ceremonial activity taking place within Sheffield Town Hall. Observations within the work reflect upon what it might mean to occupy more than one position or to remain in two minds as the film documents the citizenship ceremonies, the council meetings and a one-off brass- band performance, which was orchestrated in one of the Council's ceremonial chambers.
