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 of these images has its own story and connections, but Davies’ exploration has uncovered fascinating, unexpected relationships and further fields.
For this evening in the series, Davies invites choreographer Julie Cunningham to respond to the imagery through performance, using their own unique choreographic language. Cunningham, a New Wave Associate at Sadler’s Wells who performed for many years under the artistic directorship of Merce Cunningham in New York and Michael Clark in London, now has their own company which performs their choreographic works exploring themes of gender and identity.
Whilst Davies and Cunningham investigate practices that are visibly and tangibly different, when they come together in the same space, something happens between them. This intimate event will give audiences the chance to witness that happening.
