  • Siobhan Davies joins Board of Trustees

  • We are delighted to announce that acclaimed British choreographer, founder and artistic director of Siobhan Davies Dance, Sue Davies is joining the board of trustees. Sue began dancing while a student at Art College and soon joined London Contemporary Dance Theatre, founding in 1982 the influential company Second Stride with Richard Alston and Ian Spink. She made her first work in 1972 and formed her own company in 1988, creating since then over 40 works to critical acclaim (Olivier Awards, South Bank Show Award). Her curiosity has led her to extend her work beyond dance into performance, visual arts, film and crafts, areas which the Arts Foundation also cover. The Siobhan Davies Studios in south London offer a public programme of curated exhibitions and talks, participatory projects and classes. She joins the board which includes FT Arts Editor Jan Dalley, artist Antony Gormley and director/producer Sir Richard Eyre.
