Trinity Laban reinvents space and sound in Royal Academy of Arts

 

Trinity Laban dance and music alumni, staff and students perform in new and existing works which intertwine sound, movement and technology, in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Arts on 5 and 7 March.

Hosted by the Spun Through Shadows collective, and supported by Trinity Laban, choreographers, composers and performance artists come together to create an immersive evening of three cross-arts works that explore the relationship between movement, music, live electronics and visual and sonic design in response to the unique physical setting of the RA's Burlington Gardens.

Creator Thea Stanton and Production Manager Elizabeth Kirk-Channing, both alumni, present this exciting collection of works alongside dancers Verena Schneider and Gordon Raeburn, also both alumni, who will perform to a string quartet and live electronics.

Trinity Laban choreography lecturer Lizzi Kew-Ross also shares her dance music piece Concert Conversation, performed by 17of Trinity Laban’s final year dance students, to music composed by John White and played by Trinity Laban professor of piano Douglas Finch and Bobby Chen. Lizzi’s work was commissioned by Trinity Laban for third year undergraduate students, and premiered in the Laban Theatre in October 2014.

Thea is one third of the Spun Through Shadows collective, alongside Cameron Graham and Oliver Doyle.
