Review from The Times.

Quote:
SIOBHAN DAVIES’S status as one of Britain’s top choreographers is based on extreme dedication to craft, plus salutary doses of sheer inspiration. Her latest work, Bird Song, received its world premiere last weekend as part of the third edition of Dance Northern Ireland’s Earthquake Festival of International Dance.

Press Release

Bird Song as you've never heard it before...

The UK's leading independent dance company, Siobhan Davies Dance Company, takes off this weekend to tour Northern Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales (Until 14 May).

Get a taste and find out more by visiting their eTrailer at www.dekretser.com/efliers/birdsong/birdsong.asp?eid=bsWWDUK

Siobhan Davies Dance Company's new production, Bird Song, is the company's second major work to bring the audience strikingly close to the dancers and is presented 'in the round'.

Award winning choreographer Siobhan Davies has worked with visual artist David Ward and sound score composer Andy Pink to create an extraordinary sensory experience as film, light and video sweep across the dancers to the accompaniment of an intriguing sound score. Bird Song draws on over one hundred different sound sources as inspiration, from classical to jazz and baroque to digital samplings. At the heart of the piece is the first sound to initiate the process: the song of the Australian Pied Butcher Bird.

Intense, intimate, world-class, award winning dance.

Siobhan Davies Dance Company will be touring again in the Autumn. Full details will be available in the summer. Please sign up using the form at the end of the trailer if you would like to receive information.

Light on their feet
From The Stage

XL Video is supplying projectors to the Siobhan Davies Dance Company for its Birdsong work, which has started the first leg of its UK tour. Two Barco G5 video projectors are being used for overhead light, rigged pointing vertically downwards via special brackets made by XL.

Described as a mixed media work that integrates light and sound alongside movement, Birdsong includes a 70-minute soundscape composed by Andy Pink, while artist David Ward was commissioned to produce special video artwork, further developing ideas of light for the work.

Bird Song is more frenetic, fascinating and long. Enhanced by a twitchy, avian style of movement, the dancers’ impressive discipline, meticulous choreography, this piece conveys the ethos of abstract beauty rather than sensuality. The music: a jazzy electronic collage based on the Pied Butcher bird, is very reminiscent of a flock’s skittish behavior.
