Siobhan Davies Dance, Creative Contemporary Dance

Creative Contemporary Dance

Online, Wednesdays with Sophie Arstall and Laura Doehler.


Programmed by Siobhan Davies Studios.


These Wednesday night classes develop movement awareness through contemporary technique and movement vocabulary (Release Technique), as well as improvisational tasks and movement exploration. The class draws on principles of Release technique, emphasising flow, breath and connection with the floor. 

"I love learning about movement in a more fundamental way; challenging my preconceptions about what dance and choreography is each session"

Laura Doehler

Picking up on impermanence and change Laura choses improvisation as the format to trace and train focus that observes change. She initiates collective processes that in themselves facilitate and disseminate an embodiment of ideas, which circle around social connectivity and manifest via events that people can participate in and witness. The shedding of boundaries of self and other and the integration of performance and practice as part of everyday life are reoccurring themes. The most recent work of Exit Map which Laura is founder of, The Shared Training Practice in SE London, the Free to Move Movement, and Trilogy Twerk a Sonata, are projects brought to life in close dialogue with other cross-disciplinary artists that build on collective ownership and are defined by processes; the product being ourselves changing. Laura Doehler, BA (Dance Theatre) and MA (Performance Making), teaches movement (release, CI, improvisation, composition and movement analysis) in HE at the National School of Circus Arts London. H2dance, Tara’ Darquin, Monsur Ali and Anne-Gaelle Thiriot are artists she is currently working with as performer, collaborator and researcher.
