Course summary

Introduction

Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance offers the research degrees of MPhil and PhD, validated by City, University of London.

All programmes are research degrees, which include shared elements, such as induction, research skills training and occasional seminars, but mainly focus on regular one-to-one supervisions with two allocated members of Trinity Laban staff or one member of Trinity Laban staff and one supervisor from another institution. The options in creative practice are suitable for those whose main focus is in composition, choreography, performance, or any related activity which embodies practical components, including those whose research incorporates interdisciplinary collaborations. In addition, historical research projects that utilize archive resources at Trinity Laban are also admissible under this option.

Trinity Laban supports a wide range of research based activity, including choreography, composition, sound-art, music/dance performance, dance theatre, scenography, music/dance science, as well as encouraging collaborative work, for example between music and dance, film or technology. Some researchers pursue interdisciplinary work, combining practice with theoretical perspectives, for example looking at the cultural context of the creation and performance of work, or education and pedagogically based work. Practitioners/researchers from Trinity Laban are developing innovative, collaborative projects which aim to push the boundaries of the art forms and promote the development of new artistic media.
