Trinity Laban dancers in cross-arts collaboration


Trinity Laban’s Faculty of Dance collaborates with visual artists and musicians in Edgelands, an upcoming performance at The Crypt Gallery, St. Marylebone Parish Church, London.

Edgelands is a meeting of six visual artists, twelve dancers and one viola player, all looking to explore the overlooked spaces on the edge of urban life. As the dancers navigate the space during London’s hectic rush hour, viewers can follow their movements into the crypt, where they will find artistic impressions of forgotten lands by the Contemporary British Painting Group.

The movement of Edgelands has been created by Trinity Laban lecturer and choreographer Lizzi Kew-Ross, and is performed both by dancers in their final year on Trinity Laban’s BA (Hons) Contemporary Dance, and by fellow Trinity Laban lecturers and dance artists Alice Sara and Meg Saunders. This is not Lizzi’s first site-specific work; in 2012 she choreographed Please Visit the Churchyard for St. Vedast Churchyard, London, and Without Warning for confined spaces in the Old Vic Tunnels. Both were performed by her company Lizzi Kew-Ross & Co, the latter featuring a number of Trinity Laban alumni from both music and dance faculties.

Edgelands is performed on Thursday 14 April 2016 from 6-8pm. Please contact Curator Day Bowman on [email protected] for more information.
