Open Day at Siobhan Davies Studios

Siobhan Davies Studios will open its entire building to view as part of the city wide celebration of architecture on Saturday 19 June.

Visitors will be free to explore all areas of the RIBA award-winning building designed by Sarah Wigglesworth, and experience a number of events through the day all of which are free of charge.

Installation: Audialsense

Installed in the impressive Roof Studio, this durational work uses dense tonal chords of sine waves, based on the wavelengths associated with the dimensions of the Studio. The modulation of these tones is based on the stuttering rhythmic patterns of the cladding systems on the nearby Strata SE1 tower by architects BFLS. Recently completed, this visually striking building is visible from the Studios' windows.

Workshop: Experiencing sound through movement

12 noon-1.30pm
Siobhan Davies Dance will lead a workshop using movement to heighten the experience of the Audialsense installation and the invisible architecture it creates in the Roof Studio. Participants will be guided in their explorations of passing through the different volumes of sound, making choices in the pathways they carve through the space. This workshop is supported by BFLS.
