For the Love of Dance / June 2017
As part of Creativity and Wellbeing Week 2017, Trinity Laban presented an evening of live performance and film, showcasing three exceptional dance works created in 2017. These works have been created for, by and with participants from three of Trinity Laban’s flagship Dance and Health Programmes. These new dance works were paired with brief talks introducing some of the research themes that both underpin and spring from Trinity Laban’s Dance and Health Programmes, culminating in a Q&A with practitioners and participants on their creative experiences in developing these dynamic new works.
The 'authentic voice' of Boundless; a passionate, anarchic and innovative collective of dance artists. They presented their most recent performance works exploring Harmony and Separation. Boundless is an over '60s dance group based at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance which meets weekly. The group works solely in a contemporary and creative dance style; its members are inspired by and engaged in exploring the artistry of the dancing body in later life.
Dancing For Health
A new dance film exploring notions of re-birth, identity and tenderness. Inspired by the real-life experiences of four remarkable dancers in Trinity Laban’s Dancing for Health group.
Dancing for Health is a weekly creative dance class for adults with acquired brain injury or stroke. This film has been created by the dancers, in partnership with Choreographer Stella Howard and filmmaker Roswitha Chesher.
Beyond the Wall
A multi-sensory interactive arts performance bringing to life cutting- edge research into improving life with dementia. Imagine the sounds of birds chirping, crunch of autumn leaves, smell of scented spring flowers, shared songs and an impulse to move. An evocative journey using dance, objects and music.
Memories and relationships move through the space, evoking the lives, histories and experiences of those within care homes. A poignant piece of contemporary dance, performed by Trinity Laban Dance Artists, set to an original live and interactive music score by Eliot Lloyd Short.
