Artist Archive is Siobhan Davies Studios’ annual programme dedicated to the revival and rehoming of existing works.

Where: Siobhan Davies Studios, London, UK

When: This open call is for activity taking place between Summer 2023 and Spring 2024.

Deadline for applications: Thursday 26 January, midday.

Artist Archive questions what an archive can be and who gets to have one.

We’re interested in how dance is remembered and valued and we want to hear about the work you think needs to be archived and what you want to give visibility to in doing so. The aim of Artist Archive is to reduce and renew in place of the pressure to constantly innovate and increase output, so we’re more interested in the rough and ready than slick or flashy restagings.

Artist Archive prioritises artists/past works that:
– were unfunded or underfunded
– had few opportunities to be presented
– might otherwise be lost or forgotten
– resist the mainstream

There are 3 strands of Artist Archive to apply for: Live, Material and Digital. Find out more on our website.

How to apply:
This opportunity is open to UK-based dance artists, choreographers and collectives working in/across different approaches to movement.
