2. We’re thinking about how CoLabsolutely CoLabulous CoLab was!


3. We’re thinking of some recommendations

Sound Recommendations is a new Instagram account created and curated by TL students. They asked people what the best piece of advice they’d ever been given was and are releasing the responses as a series of micro-interviews.

The idea was born in the CoLab project Think of Something. Follow their profile and – who knows? – perhaps you’ll receive some life-changing advice from a familiar face!


4. We’re thinking about how to integrate with Tate

We’ve been all over Tate Modern this February with a series of workshops and performances, including a contact improvisation jam with the public.

Also at Tate Modern during CoLab was the Protest Choir project, involving the public in flashmobs and protest songs.


5. We’re thinking about trying a bite-sized slice of fresh dance, thrice


Get ready for an evening of blistering new works by three TL dance alumni. There will be a mixture of finished pieces and works in progress from Irina Baldini, Rob McNeill and Artémise Ploegaerts followed by drinks and an opportunity to talk to the artists.
