Alumni News

John Powell

Oscar-Nominated Film Composer
 
“My time at Trinity [now Trinity Laban] was a revelation. A chance to focus on writing, with Richard Amell’s never-ending enthusiasm, and the other students’ willingness to bring that music into reality, I loved every minute. Being able to endlessly use the studio and rehearsal rooms to try out pieces was simply heaven. Along with an eye-opening collection of world music records in the basement, these were the things that set up my creative path.”
 

Matthew Bourne OBE

Choreographer and Artistic Director, New Adventures

"My experience with Transitions led directly to me setting up my company New Adventures (formerly Adventures in Motion Picutres) with a group of fellow Laban students and members of Transitions. It taught me how a touring company worked. My BA course was instrumental in developing my passion for choreography and I owe a great deal of debt to my 4 years at what was then called The Laban Centre for Movement and Dance!"

Elly Braund

Professional Dance Artist, Richard Alston Dance Company 

"I loved my time at Trinity Laban, the thorough technique training set me up with a strong base to work from. I was able to explore in depth; Ballet, Graham, Cunningham and Limon techniques with such excellent teachers, I was pushed and encouraged and supported all the way through my training."

Cassie Kinoshi

Mercury Prize nominated London-based composer, arranger and alto-saxophonist

"Studying at Trinity Laban provided me with a foundation in orchestration and some of my first opportunities to write for large ensemble - part of the reason why I particularly enjoy creating larger scale compositions. Many of the people I met during my time at Trinity {Laban] continue to be my favourite collaborators to work with."
