About

This summer Doug Aitken’s project Station to Station explores modern creativity and takes over the Barbican for a 30-day ‘happening’ with artists from the worlds of contemporary art, dance, music, graphic design and film creating work live in the space.  As part of the project, Siobhan Davies is joined by artist Jeremy Millar, neurologist Jonathan Cole and dance artists Andrea Buckley, Charlie Morrissey, Efrosini Protopapa, Matthias Sperling and Sara Wookey to embark upon the making of a new co-authored work investigating what we feel when we are in the action of doing. From exploring the extraordinary complexity of a simple movement like standing up from a lying down position to uncovering how a gesture is the action of a thought, the residency looks at how we understand the physical nature of ourselves. In a world where thought is captured primarily through language the residency focuses on the experience and foundations of thinking in movement.

Given access to the early stages of the creative process, audiences are invited to observe and intervene throughout the week. Live work Manual (2013) made by Davies and dance artist Helka Kaski will be performed in parallel with the residency throughout its duration.

Taking place at the Barbican Centre, Silk Street, London, EC2Y 8DS
