Jack Philp, a first year BA (Hons) in Contemporary Dance at Trinity Laban, has created a site-specific dance work, Anima, for the Old Royal Naval College Chapel on 31 March.

Jack choreographed Anima, which will be performed by eight Trinity Laban dance students, to a new composition played live by music students from Trinity Laban and the Royal Academy of Music, as part of the Easter Sunday service.

Jack said he had been looking for opportunities to broaden his choreographic experience: "I've done a lot of local festival work at home in Surrey, and I want to carry on exploiting this collaborative approach to dance while I'm studying, to gain as much experience as I can.

"I love contemporary dance and it's important to me - and everyone involved in the performance - that we try and take what we experience at Trinity Laban and expose it to the public eye. The Chapel has long supported Trinity Laban's music students, and now they are being equally brilliant in embracing contemporary dance."

The dance students are - Christopher Spraggs, Kenny Shim, Sara Torsvik, Ingvild Olsen, Eilidh Brown, Belinda Papavasiliou, Vivian Triantafyllopoulou and Olivia Edginton.
