Siobhan Davies QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
But I don't want my company to get incredibly large, nor can I be responsible for masses of people, nor do all those good dancers necessarily want to work for me, for a long period of time anyway - but what they might want is a period of time to look at this work, find out about it, and move on.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
I don't start a piece knowing exactly what effect it's going to have. There is a seed of an idea that I could never articulate, right at the beginning of the piece, literally like one cell.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
If I only made dances about my own experience in dance, it would always be on my track, and I don't want that, I want to be on the track of where dance can take me.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
Independent dance - and, fine, it's a very good thing that it remains independent - is a much tougher life: all dancers expect that, and accept that there will be periods of not being able to work, provided there are choice moments during the year when they really can work.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
It's not just for its influence on us, but to know that we can play a part in it, to understand the influence that we have outside our own existence.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
No, no - this has got nothing to do with the idea of training. It's to do with using dancers who I would consider professional.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
On the other hand in London you can get an audience that desires dance to go as far as it can go: they've seen the bricks of ideas built over a period so therefore there is an acceptance of what otherwise might seem out on a limb.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
One of our problems is our sense of discipline - dancers have an extraordinary sense of self-discipline.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
So the piece is as it was in 1997, but some of the movement has been refocused, remade, to make quite sure that the process these dancers went through actually had an impact on Bank2001.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
The dance world is too small in lots of ways - it's too intense, it rattles around itself, and it needs exposing to other ideas.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
The first 2 weeks, they didn't learn the piece - they went through the process of how the piece was made.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
Then I came in twice a week - for my own enjoyment as well as to be a guide. And then we started to apply some of the splinters of the ideas back into the piece.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
There's a hunger for learning, and I think that dancers are wonderful in their ability to turn round and say 'every day is a learning day'.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
There's a mass of places, really, where the idea started.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
There's that dilemma - you want an audience to really enjoy what you're doing, and sometimes that requires them to know a lot about your subject.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
They improve greatly, and sometimes I go and see the performances they do and I am consciously aware that there isn't enough work for the good dancers.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
They should be working, and there isn't enough work.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
Those 25 dancers we worked with for a day, in as highly productive a way as possible - a long class, a period of teaching bits of the repertory - in fact I didn't teach Bank, I've used parts of Oil and Water.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
Two of them were chosen already, because they were dancers I'd seen coming to class and performing regularly, but not having enough work.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
We could ask artists from abroad to come in too, so that there could be a mixing and matching of skills from Europe, America and here which would widen our world.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
We need to find the money to do it again, but there was such a genuine interest among the dancers who did come forward that I feel we should.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
We need to think on a broader plane, we need to do more than we're doing.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
We're talking about people who've already got 3-4, if not 5-6 years' experience or more, and it's about trying to help professionals develop, using us as a resource for that development.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
Well, it's not full time - my dancers are only paid for six months of the year in two three-month blocks; but yes, it is possible we could do it in another year.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
What we do now is to be valued - but we need to do more, so that it's more exciting to other people, and therefore that excitement shines back on us and we're able to have the energy to do more, to widen our creativity.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
When I go into the studio that cell is somewhere within me but I leave it alone.
Quotation of Siobhan Davies
Yes - it's the same in any other work - the more you massage your thinking the more capable I believe you are of expanding how you go about things and learning.
