Siobhan Davies Studios


Project summary


The new home of the Siobhan Davies Dance Company opened in Spring 2006 with performances of "In Plain Clothes", choreographed by Siobhan Davies in response to her new building.


Sarah Wigglesworth Architects collaborated with Siobhan Davies to adapt a late-Victorian school near the Imperial War Museum into a versatile space accomodating two dance studios,and offices, in architecture which is physical, tactile and sinuous.


Working closely with the architects and with the company's technical staff, Charcoalblue designed sensitively co-ordinated technical facilities which allow the company to use the space both for performance, and for developing technical and choreographic elements prior to touring.
