Trinity Laban alumni Calum Lee – aka Paleman – and Clementine Telesfort will be performing as part of this year’s Manchester International Festival (MIF).
MIF is the world’s first festival of original, new work and special events. The Festival is staged every two years in Manchester with the next edition taking place from 29 June to 16 July 2017 at venues all over the city.
Manchester-born musician and DJ Calum Lee has won cult status for a series of quietly thrilling releases that have breathed new life into minimal electronic music. With a monthly Rinse FM show and collaborations with the likes of Polar Bear under his belt, he is now taking his music to another level with a new live show that incorporates his own impressive jazz drumming for the festival. He filmed the promotional video for the festival here at Trinity Laban. Calum commented:
“I am super excited to be performing at the MIF and really excited that we could film the promo at Trinity Laban, because it’s been such a huge part of getting me to this gig. Trinity Laban has helped me learn the importance of discipline and it’s enabled me to create a community of musicians around London that I can continue to work with after graduating. It’s been a great place to learn more about myself and about music. The festival is going to be chance for me to progress and move things into a new direction.”
2015 graduate Clementine Telesfort is performing in Theatre Rites' new production The Welcoming Party. The piece is a blend of puppetry, performance, dance and live music for both children and family audiences, inviting audiences to think about what it means to feel different – and why we should all be proud of who we are.
