LANGUAGE Celebratory Performance


Join us for a celebratory performance of SDS’s new community project LANGUAGE.

We have invited neighbours from Elephant and Castle for a month of workshops, to dance and share ideas together around the theme of language.

It’s been an opportunity to move, make and get to know each other – and we want to share some of this with you. Expect performance, food, drink and conversation!

The project

LANGUAGE is an encounter between artists, neighbours and the team at Siobhan Davies Studios exploring movement as a form of expression and shares experiences of communicating, misunderstanding, longing and listening.

Participants have joined our Co-Artistic Director Annie Pui Ling Lok, plus artists Juan Ayala, Akeim Toussaint Buck , Carlos Maria Romero aka Atabey Mamasita , Emiko Ishii , Maiya Leeke and Josh Hawkins .

LANGUAGE is the first of four annual projects creating and dancing with our neighbours in Elephant and Castle.

LANGUAGE will take place in various locations within a five-minute walk of our studios. Seating will be available at each point and all locations are step-free. Please bring layers and appropriate shoes.

The weather on Saturday is forecast to be hot! So please make sure you bring water, a hat, sunscreen, an umbrella... anything you might need to have outside!

The performance will begin at the Imperial Dog Park at 4pm and we will gradually move towards and into the studios. Please check-in at Siobhan Davies Studios from 3.45pm if you would like to be given directions or to walk there with a group for the start of the performance.

Food and drinks will follow the performance. Food is included with your ticket and we will be running a cheap bar!
