Town Square Studio is a shared working space.
Siobhan Davies Studios are inviting dance artists to use our studios for their movement practice and artistic research. Low-cost and easy to book, Town Square Studio offers a fortnightly space for spontaneous and creative encounters.
As a shared space, we invite all users to be generous and open to the positive collision of different needs and practices. This is as much a space for working alone, as it is for small groups and those looking to collaborate. Please keep talking to a considerate level (there are other communal spaces in the building for more meaty chatting) so that others in the studio can focus and prioritise moving and making.
We want this space to be available to those who are going to use it. If you need to cancel your place, please let us know so the space does not go unused.
The Research Studio is a 12.7m x 6.5m space with white walls and large windows. The capacity for sessions in the Research Studio is 10. The Roof Studios is a 16.5m x 12m space with wooden and white walls, high ceilings and windows. The capacity for sessions in the Roof Studio is 16.
Both studios have a sound system that we invite you to use, as agreed between those sharing the space. We are unable to provide additional technical resources such as lighting or projection. There will be a designated member of staff on hand in the office, who will be available to hear and help with questions or concerns
Group bookings are limited to five, so that a group is not in the majority. Please book a ticket for each person in your group.
Cancellations and Refunds
We want this space to be available to those who are going to use it. If you have booked a place but can no longer make it, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can make your space available to others. Repeatedly booking Town Square Studio and not attending, without letting us know, may result in a warning and then a temporary ban.
We cannot offer refunds for cancelled Town Square Studio bookings, but we can transfer your booking to another date where there is availability.
Tell us what you think
This is the first time we will be running Town Square Studio after piloting the programme in our September Housewarming in 2021. If you have any thoughts on this offer or your experience following a session, we’d love to hear your feedback. Please get in touch. We may also ask you to fill in a short feedback form when you use the space.
Bursary places are for anybody that needs them and are self-nominated.
Pay-it-forward tickets subsidise bursary tickets across the whole of our programme. If you choose to pay-it-forward, you’re generously supporting other participants to attend, thank you!
