Siobhan Davies Dance has announced performances and events for 2011, including activities at Siobhan Davies Studios.
ROTOR, a group of performances and artworks inspired by Davies’ dance The Score, will move to the Whitworth Art Gallery, the University of Manchester, from January 28–February 6. Besides the original works by Davies, Matteo Fargion, E V Crowe, Ben Tyers and others, the Whitworth will curate a response to ROTOR, and present works from their own collection, including works by Albrecht Dürer and Barbara Hepworth. From July 12–16, ROTOR will be shown at the Dovecot Studios in Edinburgh.
Davies and dance artist Matthias Sperling have been invited to create a new work for London’s Whitechapel Gallery. The piece will be performed within Clare Barclay’s Shadow Spans installation over four hours a day for a period of three weeks, from March 2–20. Rehearsals for the new commission will be broadcast live online on February 17 at www.siobhandavies.com/relay.
In October, Davies will curate four new commissions in partnership with London’s Arcola Theatre. Four groups of dance artists and artists selected by Davies, will create new works. Dance artists Henry Montes will be partnered with Marcus Coates, Sarah Warsop with Tracey Rowledge, Gill Clarke and Deborah Saxon with Lucy Skaer. Henry Montes and Deborah Saxon will also make a piece together.
