BIRMINGHAM.- Following their critically acclaimed showing in London in spring 2009 at Victoria Miro Gallery, Siobhan Davies Dance again present contemporary dance and visual art simultaneously, this time at Birmingham ’s Ikon Eastside. The Collection looks at the interface of contemporary art and dance, and considers how movement can be conceived beyond stage performances. It runs from 24 September until 4 October 2009 and admission is free.

Ikon’s Eastside space will be occupied by five dance artists performing the choreographed piece Minutes alongside artworks commissioned especially for it. Minutes has been created by Siobhan Davies with Catherine Bennett, Matteo Fargion, Henry Montes, Deborah Saxon and Matthias Sperling. Performed continuously for four hours each day, the audience is free to enter and exit the piece at any point, and move around the dancers as though they are components of a live installation.

It is presented alongside A Solo in the Doldrums by Anri Sala, comprising a drum programmed to produce a rhythm taken from a dance piece previously performed by Siobhan Davies. Lying in Wait, a three-screen film installation by Idris Khan and Sarah Warsop, is also featured.

Programmed concurrently with Minutes at Ikon Gallery in Brindleyplace is an exhibition of video work by the Russian artist Victor Alimpiev. Its careful choreography, evocative of theatre, dance and music, is a perfect counterpoint to the proposition of Siobhan Davies Dance.

Siobhan Davies created her first piece Relay in 1972 and has since made over 40 works for her own company Siobhan Davies Dance, and others including Artangel, The Royal Ballet and Rambert Dance Company. Her work has won numerous accolades including an Olivier Award and South Bank Show Award and much of it has been filmed for television. Last month, Siobhan Davies Archive was launched, a new online digital library which visually illustrates the choreographer’s practice and creative process through 36 key dance works.
