Josh Spear

Composer, Performer


During my time at Trinity Laban I worked with filmmakers, musicians, dancers, and choreographer Lizzi Kew-Ross with whom I still maintain a close relationship. I also had the chance to write for the Wind Orchestra. Crucially I met my colleagues in Bastard Assignments, which has taken me to Berlin, Chicago, and Huddersfield.
