Exploring our bodies' capacity to communicate, Siobhan Davies Dance’s most ambitious collaboration to date, material / rearranged / to / be includes performance, film projection, and sculptural objects that are presented as an ever-changing arrangement. Visitors enter the gallery and are immersed in a live environment that evolves around them.

The artists and choreographers in material / rearranged / to / be have combined art historian Aby Warburg’s ideas on bodily communication with the latest research in neuroscience to investigate how movement is felt, observed, and we reveal and conceal thought in physical behaviour.

material / rearranged / to / be features works by choreographers Andrea Buckley, Siobhan Davies, Helka Kaski, Charlie Morrissey, Efrosini Protopapa, and Matthias Sperling; visual artists Jeremy Millar, Emma Smith, and design duo Glithero (Tim Simpson and Sarah van Gameren). 

With thanks to generous support from Cockayne – Grants for the Arts and The London Community Foundation. 

Efrosini Protopapa’s work is generously supported by Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.

Presented in collaboration with Tramway.

In association with the Warburg Institute. The Warburg Institute is part of the School of Advanced Study, University of London.
A catalogue of the work will be available to purchase at the venue and Siobhan Davies Studios.

The work is durational and you are welcome to arrive and leave at any point during the opening hours.

‘...she remains one of the most curious choreographers out there, her work, like the woman herself, unflashy and intelligent, her inquisitiveness reaching places dance doesn’t often go.’ Lyndsey Winship, The Guardian

‘In an age when we're seeing a lift in the quality of design-dance collaborations Glithero's intimate partnership with Davies provides a unique perspective on the way performance and design can merge." ’ Elly Parsons, Wallpaper
