Transparencies is a series of events in which Siobhan Davies opens up a previously private choreographic practice to a live audience.
For many years, Davies has gathered photographs, texts and images printed on transparent paper. Each individual image has its own agency that allows it to fulfil its own story and set of relationships. As Davies has begun to track the connections she has made to the collection, she has also identified the potential to access further fields.
As peers have joined Davies process, she finds herself able to navigate the collection in new ways. A Process in Company sees Davies invite choreographer Nicola Conibere
, dance artist and choreographer Fernanda Munoz-Newsome
and film-maker duo Webb-Ellis
to see what perspectives they might bring to her intimate creative process.
In the company of these artists, the evening provides a rare opportunity for audiences to observe, discuss and respond in an informal and interactive setting.
