Young Choreographers showcase to be filmed at The Wallace Collection

We’re delighted to announce plans for our new Young Choreographers showcase.

Giving students the opportunity to showcase their choreographic talents, Young Choreographers will be filmed at The Wallace Collection and released via YouTube and Facebook in spring 2021. Choreography is an integral part of the students’ curriculum, enhancing their creativity by exploring ideas responding to music while finding their own individual choreographic language.

Young Choreographers will see students take inspiration from a range of artworks from The Wallace Collection - in a project curated by Dr Minna Moore Ede - and will work in collaboration with composer and conductor Martin Georgiev and the Royal College of Music as well as the London College of Fashion University of the Arts London.

Artworks chosen by Dr Minna Moore Ede include an Equestrian Knight in Armour from c1480, Perseus and Andromeda by Lemoyne and Boucher’s The Rising of the Sun. Composer and conductor Martin Georgiev has curated a playlist of over 30 musical works informed by the artworks for students to choose for their choreographies. The students will also have the opportunity to work with the London College of Fashion University of the Arts London to create costume and make-up designs.
