Wording Dances presents a series of episodes, both in English and Portuguese, where renowned artists from the international contemporary dance scene discuss matters which make of dancing and choreographing an inexhaustible terrain of experimentation, problematization and thinking.
In a co-production between Estúdios Victor Córdon and Parasita Association, it is curated by Carlos Manuel Oliveira.
In this episode of Wording Dances, English dancer and choreographer Siobhan Davies reads to us Postcards from a life which dances, a text which she wrote exclusively for this occasion.
Davies is engaged with image gathering, drawing, writing and conversation as extensions of dance and choreography. She has been active for over 50 years, making work for both theatres and galleries and, in 2006, together with architect Sarah Wigglesworth, created the Siobhan Davies Dance Studios, in London. She retired from the studios in 2020, but remains an associate professor at Coventry University (Cdare).
