A world class home base
ID’s regular programme is based at Siobhan Davies Studios where facilities include changing rooms with showers, the parlour with computer access, and a kitchen.
Siobhan Davies Studios’ daring design was awarded a prestigious RIBA award in 2006 and was born out of a collaboration between Siobhan Davies and architect Sarah Wigglesworth. Home to Siobhan Davies Dance and Independent Dance, the building houses two studios: the Roof Studio and the Research Studio, as well as a meeting room, reception area, parlour, kitchen and informal relaxation space. The studios and meeting room are available for hire to independent dance artists.
Siobhan Davies Studios Therapies also offers a range of alternative therapies including acupuncture, osteopathy, and massage. The building also programmes open public classes in a range of body conditioning and dance styles. For more information please visit their website.
The ID programme is open to disabled and non-disabled dance artists. Our work is not based on a normative view of the human body, and we strive at all times to create a context where artists with disabilities work as equal participants. We learn about this continually from the artists with whom we work.
Siobhan Davies Studios is fully accessible to wheelchair users, with lifts to both floors. There are also two accessible parking spaces available on site.
The Roof Studio is fitted with an infra red audio system and both studios have an induction loop hearing system. We are currently not financed to provide BSL interpretation or audio description.
If you have any access requirements please contact us to discuss them.
