Awards announced for the Jerwood Choreographic Research Project

This year, the Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership and Trinity Laban individually have each participated in the Jerwood Choreographic Research Project, an innovative investment model designed to kick-start ideas and research into challenging and exciting choreographic concepts. It aims to stimulate new thinking in choreography by enabling artists and creatives to think, dream and experiment freely.

Trinity Laban participated in the selection process by volunteering to read and grade proposals, attend the shortlisting day, and participate in the final pitching and selection day at Dance Xchange. In order to support the selected artists, Trinity Laban have allocated funding as well as in-kind resources.

The projects being supported are:

Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership: Sasha Milavic Davies and Lucy Railton

Research into everyday female gesture and traditional women’s dance from around the world, and exploring large-scale participation for women of all backgrounds, ages and professions.

Trinity Laban: Dan Daw and Mark Maughan:

Dissecting the notion of “inspiration” and exploring the wider notions of inspiration beyond disability and its relationship to audience need and expectation.
