Fort-Da ← Visual Arts ← Siobhan Davies Dance


A performance season inspired by the Freudian term Fort-Da, that describes how a child choreographs the loss and return of a loved object. Curated by Ali MacGilp, Fort-Da brings together new commissions by four artists that each experiment with choreography to resolve situations of social conflict. In their work, each of the artists respond to the setting of the Studios in a former school, a building permeated by the sounds of playground games from the primary school next door.
