CoLab – Trinity Laban’s unique two-week celebration of collaboration – gives you the opportunity to explore what being a performing artist in the 21st century means to you.

For two weeks each year, CoLab provides a place to take risks, be creative and experiment within a rich and supportive environment. Over 800 students from across the Faculties of Dance and Music come together to create, develop and rehearse projects without the distraction of any other learning activities or performances.

Part study and part festival, CoLab results in an abundance of informal, small- and large-scale performance events across Trinity Laban. In recent years, students have had the opportunity to perform with the likes of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Contemporary Voices and Michael Kliën and in venues such as the National Maritime Museum, the Royal Opera House and the Royal Festival Hall.
