Siobhan Davies CBE DLitt (born 1950 and often known as Sue Davies) was a dancer with the London Contemporary Dance Theatre during the 1970s, then becoming one of its leading choreographers before founding her own company — the Siobhan Davies Dance Company — in 1988. First training in art, Davies was one of the first year's intake of full-time students at the London School of Contemporary Dance.

Since 1992 Davies has focused on pieces for her own company. Choreographic style Davies’ work is very abstract. She tries to use the quality of the sound rather than the sound itself. She thinks a lot more about the texture and emotion behind a piece, rather than what you would see just by looking at or hearing it. Her dances are more than superficial, as her work is deeply concerned about what is happening with all constituent features. She has a fascination with using abstract sounds, and letting the body become part of the sound rather than just something moving to it. Her work contains many elements of what it means to be human and the human existence.Also her dances are abstract and rarely narrative. She enjoys using certain sounds instead of pieces of music and then she adds them together. Each dancer gets a headset with a sound playing and Siobhan asks them to move and make motifs based on that certain sound.
