In recent years, Siobhan Davies Dance company has twice come to Glasgow’s Tramway. Each time I spent many hours, over many days, in the space with the dancers. The pieces, 'Table of Contents and material / re-arranged / to / be', were episodic, overlapping and durational. The first took place in the small, square Gallery 5, which has a wall of windows that face onto Albert Drive; the second took place in Tramway 2, the echoing, industrial chamber that was formerly the tram depot. Over the run of the shows there grew to be familiar faces who spent hours there as audience members, watching as unique combinations of movements and sounds manifested around us, which were whole at the point of delivery and yet catalytic too. I think a few of us found this utterly compelling. These essays / propositions are my attempt to evoke aspects of these pieces and the bodies that created them.
