Future Recollections
21 Feb – 2 May 2018

In collaboration with The Space, we are delighted to be embarking upon a new digital exploration of the Siobhan Davies archive. Our new project, Future Recollections, will present 6 short films in which Siobhan Davies will examine and question moments, ideas, and happenings that have inspired and challenged her throughout her choreographic practice. 

Starting on Wed 21 Feb we will present a new film fortnightly focused on a particular theme or idea selected by Siobhan Davies. In between each film we will open up the conversation to you and invite you to connect with us online with your own thoughts, ideas and questions.

Over the coming weeks we will share more information about each future recollection in the series.

Follow #FutureRecollections online to join the conversation and follow the project.
