Siobhan Davies Dance: Table of Contents

About

Table of Contents is a live performance and installation co-created by Siobhan Davies, Andrea Buckley, Helka Kaski, Rachel Krische, Charlie Morrissey and Matthias Sperling, each using dance and their own history as choreographers and performers to question how dance is archived. Resembling a form of movement laboratory, a series of evolving choreographic pieces take place over the course of the day in a shared space between performers and audiences. Defying both the traditional art-object focus of galleries and the performative aspect of dance, Davies and the dance artists create a new durational work that analyses movements and explores the social interactions between artist and visitor. This new work plays with the relationship between dance and other art forms, but in the end celebrates dance as a very particular way of apprehending the world. Siobhan Davies (CBE) is a renowned British choreographer, having created over 60 works to critical acclaim: twice-winning an Olivier Award, and others including Digital Dance Awards and a South Bank Show Award. Table of Contents is a collaboration between Siobhan Davies Dance, the ICA (London), Tramway (Glasgow) and Arnolfini (Bristol).
