This summer term Trinity Laban are offering a unique opportunity for adults to dance and create.
Choreo Lab is an 11 week course, taking place on Tuesday evenings throughout summer term. The session will develop and enhance your creativity through workshops and choreographic processes. You’ll take part in improvisation and creative tasks, working individually and together in groups.
You’ll work with experienced dance artist, Luke Birch, across 11 weeks. Choreo lab will culminate in an informal sharing in the final session in Trinity Laban’s Studio Theatre, with the opportunity to invite friends and family.
Through guided tasks and enquiries you’ll find ways to layer form and feeling to build choreography. From initial seeds of ideas you can follow your curiosities to play with ways to generate movement and find personal nuance in the way you craft it.
