“Why I’m not talking”, choreographed by Marina Collard, was my graduate piece at Trinity Laban, and the last time I was on stage at the Bonnie Bird. The creation process consisted of five weeks research and rehearsals, and culminated in two evenings of performance. Marina’s approach to dance-making was the perfect end to my time at Trinity Laban. The process involved a lot of movement research, but was quite open in terms of the desired aesthetic. It was a privilege to be able find ways of moving that felt truly individual, and it was each person responsibility to “carve out a role” for themselves. It was truly a pleasure to work with Marina, I hope our paths cross again one day!
