Percolate is a new programme from Siobhan Davies Studios offering flexible support to artists. There will be three open calls per year, offering cash, free studio space and the support of our team for those selected. We want to hear ideas that might not fit into ordinary funding structures, or about something new that you’re testing.

Watch a one-minute video introduction here. 

Siobhan Davies Studios supports artists working with dance and choreography. We support work informed by research and investigation, often across varying disciplines and contexts. Whether you’re a dance artist exploring a new piece, a visual-art collective working on a film involving choreography, or a hip-hop dancer delving into new modes of working – or many others besides – we would love to hear from you. We recognise that additional barriers exist in dance and the arts for disabled artists and artists of colour, so we strongly encourage applications from artists identifying in these ways.

Percolate is an all-encompassing programme taking over from our previous Torchlight and Open Choreography programmes. This change allows us to have more frequent call-outs and offer more bespoke support to artists. We will host up to four Percolate Artists each season, who will be central to our artistic programme at Siobhan Davies Studios.
