Dance alumnus James Pett has joined Wayne McGregor's acclaimed dance company, Random Dance.
James competed as a gymnast for ten years, representing Great Britain at the World Gymnastrada in Austria in 2007. He graduated from Trinity Laban in 2011 with a first class BA (Hons) degree and was awarded the Marion North Award for outstanding achievement in performance.
James said: "Since starting my training at Trinity Laban, working for Wayne McGregor was always a dream of mine. Now I'm dancing in Atomos, which has pushed my movement range and challenged my creative mind to a new level. Working in 3D to create movement for Atomos has brought exciting new possibilities to explore as a dancer."
Over the last two years James has danced for the Richard Alston Dance Company, performed in Dance Umbrella, worked with Robert Cohan on a revival of In Memory and The Bride and the Bachelors exhibitions at the Barbican Centre and also worked with Jeannie Steele on a collective of Cunningham's works.
