Dance student embraces collaborative study with Chapel Easter performance
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
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
The dance students are - Christopher Spraggs, Kenny Shim, Sara
Torsvik, Ingvild Olsen, Eilidh Brown, Belinda Papavasiliou, Vivian
Triantafyllopoulou and Olivia Edginton.
