This month sees the culmination of a two-year project at Siobhan Davies Dance, one of the country’s most distinctive dance companies. Choreographer Davies has paired dance artists with visual and applied artists to bring their creative practices together and create new works ranging from performance to film and installation. The commissioned dance artists are Henry Montes, Sarah Warsop, Gill Clarke and Deborah Saxon who are partnered respectively with Marcus Coates, Tracey Rowledge and Lucy Skaer. Henry Montes and Deborah Saxon have also made a piece together with Bruce Sharp. Here, three of the visual artists relate their experiences.
