Material is a magazine published by Siobhan Davies Studios. It aims to nurture dialogue around dance, choreography and contemporary artistic practices.

The theme of Material No. 3 is Invitation and it features contributions from Hannah Sampson (Stopgap Dance Company), Shenece Oretha, Stephanie Forrest, Cheniece Warner and FUBUNATION.

Published at a point of transition, as we welcome new Co-Artistic Directors Annie Pui Ling Lok and Kat Bridge and return to the building, this issue is a site for encounter — between people, ideas, text, image, movement and sound.

To create this issue Siobhan Davies approached five artists, asking them to invite a contributor. They could be someone they considered energising and intriguing, someone they wanted to hear more from, or someone they thought we and others in our community should be aware of. The artists inviting were: Katye Coe, Helka Kaski, Patricia Okenwa, Adesola Akinleye and Cherilyn Albert.

Material, No. 3 was made possible by the DCMS Cultural Recovery Fund.
