Maria Nemtsova (ISP, 2013, pictured above) has recently returned from a tour to the Balkan countries (including Croatia, Serbia, Kosovo, Bosnia, Herzegovina and Slovenia) with the “Music for Peace” project, of which she is joint-leader. “Music for Peace” is a charitable musical project, and its mission is to benefit young musicians who live in today’s conflict zones. Their aim is to organise classical music concerts and educational masterclasses in the post-conflict states and zones devastated by acts of terrorism or natural disasters.
Navigating in Blue, presented by former senior lecturer and Trinity Laban alumnus Susan Sentler (MA Creative Practice, 2013) will be held at the NOW Gallery in Greenwich Peninsula from 27-28 March 2015.
Created in response to Robert Orchardson’s structural installation Aperture, Sentler’s performance will take the form of a durational improvisation, performed by dancers inside and outside the gallery, exploring sensations and ideas of travel, navigation, space and Greenwich Peninsula’s waterfront setting. The dancers are all Trinity Laban alumni - Irina Baldini (BA, 2010), Marion David (BA, 2014), Stella Papi (BA, 2012), Lorea Burge (BA, 2014), Mathilde Lepage (BA, 2014), Sandro Piccirilli (BA, 2013), Silvio Sighinolfi (BA, 2014), Eeva Juutinen (BA 2014), Veronica Mauro (BA 2012) and Hannah Parsons (BA 2014).
