Darkened Room is Siobhan Davies Dance’s third summer youth commission, this year in partnership with The Photographers' Gallery.


Performers and photographers of all levels, aged 16–21 are invited to work with choreographer Freddie Opoku-Addaie to create a new live work that will be performed at The Photographers’ Gallery. The piece brings together choreography with the Gallery’s permanent camera obscura, exploring how a dance work can be viewed in different ways both live on-site and through the lens. The camera obscura produces an inverted image of the outside world in a darkened space within the Gallery.

Residency dates: Mon 27–Fri 31 July, 10.30am–5pm daily
Performance date: Sat 1 August, 2pm and 4pm

Applications close 22 July. For more information and to request an application form, email or call 020 7091 9650
