Dance & Architecture – Under The Ribbon Roof: Part of London Architecture Biennale
Sun 18 Jun 2006

Siobhan Davies Studios

As part of the London Architecture Biennale, Siobhan Davies Studios welcomes visitors to the newly opened building. 

The development of the new Siobhan Davies Studios results from a close collaboration between the choreographer Siobhan Davies and architect Sarah Wigglesworth.  Their project, a major refurbishment and extension of a redundant three-story building dating from 1898, is located in the playground of the Charlotte Sharman Foundation Primary School in St. George’s Road, Southwark.  A bold, organic design breathes new life into the old structure, enhancing it with contemporary elements such as an impressive two-storey atrium and a signature undulating roof in its main performance space.

Visitors are invited to take the opportunity to view the new Studios and hear Siobhan Davies and Sarah Wigglesworth discuss their work together, from their inspirations for developing a new dance centre to creating a new dance piece, In Plain Clothes, which celebrates the buildings opening.  The afternoon also hosts a discussion with dancer-choreographer Carol Brown and the architect Mette Ramsgard Thomsen, who will talk about their project Sea, Unsee.
