Recording of Siobhan Davies 'Manual' Dance Event

The renowned British choreographer, Siobhan Davies, brought her work to the JdP for an inspiring event on Thursday 15 May 2014. Davies has created over 60 works to critical acclaim: twice-winning an Olivier Award, and others including Digital Dance Awards and a South Bank Show Award. Founding Siobhan Davies Dance in 1988, she has consistently worked closely with collaborating dance artists to ensure that their own artistic enquiry was part of the creative process. At this event she spoke about and illustrated her core philosophy in her work Manual with a ‘dance performance’ by Helka Kaski and interview with her colleague, Eckhard Thiemann, a curator, artistic director and international arts producer.
