Conceived by American artist Doug Aitken in 2013, Station to Station is living project exploring modern creativity.

This summer, Station to Station comes to London for its one and only international stop, taking over the Barbican for a 30-day ‘happening’. A beacon for cross-disciplinary artistic production, the project draws together international artists from the world of contemporary art, music, dance and cinema to question ‘what is the creative landscape in the 21st century’.

As part of the project, Siobhan Davies is joined by artist Jeremy Millar, neurologist Jonathan Cole and dance artists Andrea Buckley, Charlie Morrissey, Efrosini Protopapa, Matthias Sperling and Sara Wookey, to embark upon the initial process of making a new co-authored work for 2016 investigating the nature of human bodily sensation. During the weeklong residency, the collaborators explore ways in which their individual practices co-exist to enliven and enrich the ideas of each other. Given access to the early stages of the creative process, audiences are invited to observe and intervene.

Live work Manual (2013) made by Davies and dance artist Helka Kaski will be performed in parallel with the residency throughout its duration.
