The story of a dancer who devoted herself to Butoh.
“As dancers, we physically redefine ourselves through our teachers, but what’s tricky is when we take on a form that is so deeply rooted in a different cultural tradition, and the narrative is not our narrative.” The New Yorker

Siobhan Davies Dance are offering a helping hand to artists/freelancers applying for ACE and/or the government's recently announced funding schemes 👋
Find out how they can support you: siobhandavies.com/c19-artistsupport/Last week, Arts Council England and the government announced Emergency Funding and Support Schemes for freelancers affected by Covid-19.
If you’re an artist planning on making an application to either of these schemes, or are in need of other administrative support in the wake of this crisis, then the team at Siobhan Davies Studios would like to help. We’re offering our time and skills to artists - this might take the form of advice or walkthroughs of the process, proofreading, letters of support or other forms of advocacy. If we can help, we will.
