DIG presents - Siobhan Davies Dance: material / rearranged / to / be
Open daily 21 - 30 April, 12 - 6pm
CLOSED Monday 24 April
A new performance installation from London-based investigative arts organisation Siobhan Davies Dance. A rare opportunity to see a performance by Siobhan Davies.
material / rearranged / to / be is an installation comprised of multiple new works by choreographers, visual artists, scientists and designers. Exploring how the body feels when in the act of doing, the installation includes live performance, film projection and objects that are presented as an ever-changing arrangement.
Each of the works draws upon the project of the art historian Aby Warburg, who collected diverse images from different times and places and positioned them side-by-side to reveal previously-hidden relationships. As they interrogate the fascinating relationship between mind and body, the artists create new works including choreography exploring lost movements from the past, interactive structures examining the postures of an argument and a series of hanging mobiles inspired by Albrecht Dürer’s Melancholia.
The works appear within a large-scale architecture, which is assembled, dismantled and rearranged, creating new pathways and drawing visitors into a journey of discovery.
Featuring work from:
Siobhan Davies & Helka Kaski | Andrea Buckley |Charlie Morrissey | Jeremy Millar | Efrosini Protopapa | Matthias Sperling | Emma Smith | Glithero (Sarah van Gameren & Tim Simpson)
material / rearranged / to / be premiered in London this January. It come to Tramway as part of Dance International Glasgow before touring to Manchester and Liverpool.
