IN PLAIN CLOTHES - SPECIAL PRICE FOR SOUTHWARK RESIDENTS

Map: http://quicklink.se1direct.co.uk/?id=1116
In Plain Clothes celebrates the completion of Siobhan Davies
Studios in St George's Road, the first permanent home of
Siobhan Davies Dance. Davies, with creative input from her
company of dancers and the collaboration of four creative
advisors, has produced something unique in the sphere of
contemporary dance. Using the simplicity of Italian folk
songs, the piece is constructed using fragments of dance;
individual musical notes represent each movement, giving the
final work unlimited connections.  Working closely with her
composer and designers, Siobhan Davies has produced In Plain
Clothes specifically for a studio space.  In Plain Clothes
is the latest stage in the choreographer's quest to create a
performer/audience intimacy rarely experienced in dance.
