The Horniman Museum and Gardens and Trinity Laban have been working together on exciting projects since 2009. This year Trinity Laban will host two ammonites, as part of the Museum’s Object in Focus loan programme. Click on the link to find out more about the ammonites and hear from Horniman Palaeontologist and Deputy Keeper of Natural History, Dr Emma Nicholls and storyteller, Olivia Armstrong. There will also be lots of ammonite inspired creative task to try out and a creative challenge to get involved in!
Time Out While In is an invitation to take some time to explore your breath and voice. The piece follows the structure of an embodied voice practice I have developed in my work with Trinity Laban’s Inspired not Tired groups. While we are unable to meet in our weekly circles I created this as a space in which to resonate. We begin with finding an awareness of the body and breath; once the circle of your breathing pattern is found, I invite you to let that evolve into toned singing, letting the voice grow from the breath. Improvise into the vocal texture as you feel, let your voice complete the circle.
Singing for lung health
Delivered by creative practitioner James Moriarty, these videos promote good lung health through singing to keep our mind and bodies engaged whilst at home. Visit James’s website to learn more about him.
Adult Bite Sized Warm-ups
The Take Part at Home adult warm-up explorations are an invitation to tune into your body and explore your personal range of movement. Each warm-up is devised out of my practice with Trinity Laban’s Adult, Boundless and Dancing for Health groups, and aims to be inclusive to a range of ages and mobilities. They begin with drawing attention to specific areas of the body, before mobilising and improvising. You may wish to use the video as dance suggestions, or turn the screen away and use my voice as a guide. I invite you to take the explorations at your own pace, staying longer in moments that feel rewarding, and finding ways of moving that are enjoyable to your body.

It is important to us to support both the physical and mental health of our community. We commissioned some of our Trinity Laban Health practitioners to create home workouts including yoga for breath awareness, restorative stretching and pilates.
