Following performances throughout the UK and in Germany, Table of Contents is showing in Vienna, Austria. 

Table of Contents is a live movement installation co-created by Siobhan Davies, Andrea Buckley, Helka Kaski, Rachel Krische, Charlie Morrissey and Matthias Sperling, each using their own history as a choreographer and performer to question how dance is archived.

Resembling a form of movement laboratory, a series of evolving choreographic situations take place in a shared space between performers and audiences. The work offers the possibility of a live dialogue to experience and consider how the past reveals itself in our present actions.

Using the archive of Siobhan Davies Dance as an initial but not exclusive starting point, Table of Contents explores what archival dance material could look like and how it could be experienced. Each of the artists delves into material from their past using choreography and verbal commentary to question how we remember and retain movement. Concepts of archive and choreography are a  constant reference point, from investigating dance history to looking at the human body as an archive.

Table of Contents is a collaboration between Siobhan Davies Dance, the ICA (London), Tramway (Glasgow) and Arnolfini (Bristol).

‘Table of Contents presents a way to rethink the notion of the dance archive – asking where, indeed, a dance archive is located, if not in the body itself.’ Laura McLean-Ferris, Art Review
