TL’s research deemed world-leading by REF 2021

The results of the Research Excellence Framework 2021 have been published 

Overall 68% of Trinity Laban’s research was assessed to be world-leading and internationally excellent, a significant improvement from the last REF (2014) furthering TL’s position as one of the UK’s leading conservatoires and its standing in a comparative group of UK conservatoires. 

100% of our research impacts were ranked at the two top grades 4* (world-leading in originality, significance and rigour), and 3* (internationally excellent). This reflects the real world benefits Trinity Laban’s research has delivered. 

At sector level, we are in the top three UK conservatoires offering musical training. 

Undertaken every seven years, the Research Excellence Framework (REF) is a peer review process set up to assess the quality of research across UK universities. It aims to provide accountability for public investment in research and to support benchmarking within the HE sector and beyond. The outcomes are also used to calculate the distribution of public funding for university research.

Innovation Award Winner Premieres New Work

Alum Laura Engholm explores experiences of homelessness through ‘Stories of Belonging’

Danish dance artist and emerging choreographer Laura Engholm was a recipient of our TL Innovation Award in 2020 for her proposal to engage with those affected by homelessness and hidden homelessness through inclusive dance practice.

The TL Innovation Award is a unique competition for final-year undergraduates, offering winners a financial award and bespoke professional development support to establish themselves as artists within one of the fastest growing sectors of the UK economy.

Mentored by participatory dance artist and fellow alum Stella Howard, Laura used her Award to created dance company Engholm Danseteater, which places diversity and inclusion at the heart of its work.

The company is now set to premiere its first piece, Stories of Belonging, on 17 Dec 2021 at London’s October Gallery, in partnership with Arts and Homelessness International and St Mungo’s Recovery College.

The foundations of the project are in the creative writing from adults with lived experience of homelessness and not fitting in, who were invited to take part. Their stories appear in both direct and indirect ways as movement, music or words.

Choreographed by Laura, the final piece is a witty and thoughtful blend of contemporary dance, music, poetry and physical theatre, creating a living collage of stories about what it means to belong to a place, to a person, to a tribe, to yourself.

On the upcoming premiere, Laura comments –

“I am so proud and excited that this is finally a reality.”

Winter Season Highlights

Winter Events 2021-22

Encounter intriguing and inventive moments of music and dance in our three-month programme of live and digital events.

Running across November, December and January, our winter season includes an operatic world premiere and new work by Alumni Associate Artist Theo TJ Lowe.

Written by Edward Jessen and commissioned by Trinity Laban, Syllable – A Particle Tale will run for three performances at the Laban Theatre (14 & 15 Jan). With a sinfonietta-scale ensemble, auxiliary audio, and visual projection, this artistically ambitious and experimental sonic theatre work is no ordinary opera. Inspired by a range of works including Primo Levi’s 1975 collection of short stories The Periodic Table, audiences can expect a drama driven by sounds rather than conventional plot. The project, which is supported by the PRS Foundation’s The Open Fund for Music Creators, will be a collaboration with musicians, dance artists and composer-performer collective Bastard Assignments.

Also premiering as part of our winter season is the next iteration of Theo TJ Lowe’s Let me move (15 Dec). The improvisation project originated in autumn 2020 as a way for recent graduates to physically engage with how they felt returning to a studio after periods of lockdown. The process resulted in an ephemeral piece of live dance streamed to audiences’ homes. Now Lowe returns to offer 2021 dance graduates an opportunity to continue creating, and to share the moment with a live audience, with Let me move: continued Part 2.

There are vocal delights later in the month as the Trinity Laban Undergraduate Chorus present an eclectic mix of protest music conducted by Sarah Latto (17 Nov). Expect everything from Tippett and Britten to ‘One Day More’ from Les Misérables and Aminita Francis‘ Black Lives Matter. And, to get into the festive spirit, join the Old Royal Naval College Trinity Laban Chapel Choir as they present Handel’s Messiah, conducted by Ralph Allwood MBE (5 Dec).

Musicians from the Trinity Laban community are heading to the Southbank Centre to perform as part of the EFG London Jazz Fest celebrations (21 Nov) including the freshest talent on London’s scene (The Jazz Hang with Tomorrow’s Warriors and Trinity Laban), our Fletcher Henderson Project and a host of alumni.

An evening with Trinity Laban Brass Ensemble (26 Nov) sees critically-acclaimed trumpeter, conductor and Trinity Laban alum Mike Lovatt lead a live rendition of the iconic 1958 Billy May album Big Fat Brass alongside Bizet’s Carmen Suite as you’ve never heard it before.

In December, our final-year Musical Theatre students present Merrily We Roll Along (7-11 Dec) at Laban Theatre. Boasting one of Stephen Sondheim’s most beautiful scores, the story follows the successful career of Broadway composer turned Hollywood producer Franklin as he realises the true cost of fame and fortune.

Conducted by Head of Strings Nic Pendlebury, Trinity Laban String Ensemble (10 Dec) are joined by violinist Joe Townsend and harpist Maria McNamee for a musical tour of the British Isles. The evening features work by Sally Beamish, Elgar and James MacMillan. The performance will be followed by a late lounge performance from BA Music Performance and Industry producers in the Hearn Recital Room.
