Siobhan Davies and Claire Barclay


Choreographer Siobhan Davies and dance artist Matthias Sperling have been invited to create a choreographic response to Claire Barclay's installation, Shadow Spans, for the Whitechapel Gallery. This new durational work will be presented live within the installation over four hours daily, 2 – 20 March 2011.
As part of the lead up to this new commission, a live rehearsal will be broadcast online on Siobhan Davies Relay website, giving a unique opportunity for viewers to share in the artists' creative process. As well as witnessing Davies and Sperling discuss the work and explore movement material first hand, viewers will be given the chance to pose questions and comments to the two artists through Siobhan Davies Dance's social media platforms and live chat.
The rehearsal will be broadcast on Thurs 17 February 2011 at 2.30-3.30pm.
