A panel discussion investigating the challenges of institutional or artist-led archives.

Table of Contents is a live performance and installation co-created by Siobhan Davies, Andrea Buckley, Helka Kaski, Rachel Krische, Charlie Morrissey and Matthias Sperling, each using their own history as choreographers and performers to question how dance is archived and how different art forms build on their own history.

The work sets up a shared space between audience and dancer, inviting the audience into a live dialogue to experience and consider how the past reveals itself in our present actions. Bringing the traditional art focus of galleries and the performative aspect of dance together, this new work intentionally shows the process of dance and choreographic thinking in a gallery context.

Siobhan Davies Dance pushes the boundaries of what is thought of as dance, renewing its thinking and working in non-traditional dance venues to promote new exchanges.

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

Open 11am – 6pm Tuesday to Sunday, and Thursdays from 2pm – 9 pm
