Join Professor of Dance History Ramsay Burt in conversation with Siobhan Davies, Artistic Director of Siobhan Davies Dance, in an in-depth discussion about Davies’ creative process.
Davies and Burt have enjoyed an exciting history of collaboration, most recently with Burt's 2014 essay 'Dancers and/as archives' for the Siobhan Davies Dance Table of Contents catalogue. Last summer, Davies invited Burt to observe rehearsals for Table of Contents, her most recent work made in collaboration with Andrea Buckley, Helka Kaski, Rachel Krische, Charlie Morrissey and Matthias Sperling.
Table of Contents is a live movement installation using each dance artist's own history as a choreographer and performer to question how dance is archived and how different art forms build on their own history.
Burt is founding editor with Susan Foster of Discourses in Dance and his recent publications include Judson Dance Theatre (2006) and, with Valerie Briginshaw, Writing Dancing Together (2009).
