Announcing the CONTINUOUS network - Siobhan Davies Dance


Siobhan Davies Dance are excited to announce the CONTINUOUS Network, expanding their four-year partnership with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art which brings dance to galleries, by including more arts institutions from around the country.

Seven additional partners across the UK have joined the new network including galleries Bluecoat (Liverpool), Nottingham Contemporary, The Tetley (Leeds), Tramway (Glasgow) and Turner Contemporary (Margate), and dance organisations Dance4 (Nottingham) and Yorkshire Dance (Leeds). The partnership will continue until 2022 and is set to include four additional galleries.

The CONTINUOUS Network gives audiences all over the country access to the best in experimental independent dance and choreography from around the UK. Dance will animate museums, galleries and other spaces – spaces where today’s choreographers want to make and present work and where audiences are curious to encounter the new and unexpected.

By 2022 the network will present six new dance works for galleries co-commissioned among network partners and will tour eight existing dance works by the UK’s most innovative dance makers. It aims to reach over 75,000 people live and online over three years.

The CONTINUOUS Network marks a significant expansion for Siobhan Davies Dance’s programme to support current and future generations of dance artists. It highlights the values of its founder Siobhan Davies – collaboration, investigation and working across disciplines – in the broader dance sector, and it extends the company’s practice of more than a decade making and performing dance in galleries across the UK and abroad.

CONTINUOUS will publicly launch in October 2019 with the first commission by choreographer Lucy Suggate and collaborating dance artists, musicians and designers. The Spirit Sessions: Where there is movement there is change will premiere at BALTIC and tour nationally to organisations within the CONTINUOUS Network.

The second CONTINUOUS commission, by Zinzi Minott, will premiere at BALTIC and tour from April 2020.

This major collaboration has been awarded an Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grant and generous support from the John Ellerman Foundation.
