Trinity Laban welcomes Fulbright ScholarsMon 22 Jan 2018
On Saturday 20 January, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance hosted a special event in collaboration with the US-UK Fulbright Commission.
Trinity Laban is the only UK conservatoire to offer a Fulbright Scholarship: the Fulbright-Trinity Laban Award in Music & Dance, which offers US citizens the chance to pursue postgraduate study at Trinity Laban.
More than 30 Fulbright Scholars currently studying at universities around the UK came to witness a special presentation from choreographer Roman Baca, the current holder of the Fulbright-Trinity Laban Award. Roman, a military veteran, shared his work-in-progress towards a unique choreographic work based on Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, aimed at connecting military veterans, victims of war and civilians.
Professor Anthony Bowne, Principal of Trinity Laban, said:
“Roman Baca is an exceptionally talented individual doing truly extraordinary work. We were honoured to have the chance to present his work to this year’s Fulbright Scholars, within our magnificent dance building. We are incredibly proud of our longstanding links with the US, and are thrilled to be partners with the US-UK Fulbright Commission.”
Penny Egan CBE, Executive Director of the US-UK Fulbright Commission said:
“Trinity Laban is a highly valued partner of the Fulbright programme, and we were delighted to collaborate with them on this special performance choreographed by Roman Baca.”
