Laban Theatre

The award winning Laban Building was made for dance and through the Laban Theatre programme, large scale performance meets intimate choreographic exploration.

Laban Theatre’s 300 seat Bonnie Bird auditorium, intimate 100 seat Studio Theatre and Performance Laboratory at Laurie Grove Studios host much of the performance programme, but some artists prefer to show their work in our less conventional settings.

Dances and installations are frequently seen in spaces in, on and outside of Laban Building; the inspiring outdoor amphitheatre, the lightwell, lecture rooms and our splendid architectural folly of a 'corridor to nowhere'.

Diverse, inspiring and thought provoking dance performance is a crucial part of our programme.

The Greenwich Dance and Trinity Laban Partnership Compass Commissions

Following the enormous success of its inaugural year in 2014, The Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership announces a new set of Compass Commission artists for 2015-16.

From the hundreds that applied, four dance makers have been selected to benefit from this unique opportunity: Dan Daw, Rahel Vonmoos, Sarah Dowling and Wendy Houstoun.

Each will develop and premiere a brand new dance performance piece in the coming year with support from The Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership underpinning the work throughout. 

The Music Connection

Collaborative activities with students and staff of Trinity Laban’s Faculty of Music offer an exciting, additional dimension to our programme. Every year a number of projects bring music and dance students together, and students also develop their own cross art-form work.
