Join us for a celebratory performance of SDS’s new community project LANGUAGE.
We have invited neighbours from Elephant and Castle for a month of workshops, to dance and share ideas together around the theme of language.
It’s been an opportunity to move, make and get to know each other – and we want to share some of this with you.
Expect performance, food, drink and conversation!
LANGUAGE is an encounter between artists, neighbours and the team at Siobhan Davies Studios exploring movement as a form of expression and shares experiences of communicating, misunderstanding, longing and listening.
Participants have joined our Co-Artistic Director Annie Pui Ling Lok, plus artists Juan Ayala, Akeim Toussaint Buck, Carlos Maria Romero aka Atabey Mamasita, Emiko Ishii, Maiya Leeke and Josh Hawkins.
We have been discovering a number of different movement styles and dance languages including Vogue-chi, Hip-hop, Caribbean dance, Contemporary dance, Kathak and Martial arts.
LANGUAGE is the first of four annual projects creating and dancing with our neighbours in Elephant and Castle. Find out more here.
