Animate Artists


This year, our programme for Animate Artists includes a performance platform at the Tate Modern as part of Tate Exchange, as well as an artistic collaboration with young dancers for Live at Trinity Laban 2017.



Animate Artists is a creative ensemble for young people (up to school year 13) who are interested in collaborating with other young artists.

Animate Artists will work with a team of young contemporary dancers and 25-30 other Animate Artists musicians. Over five months, young people will devise a brand new performance piece featuring music and dance, and ultimately showcase this piece at the prestigious Laban Building on Tuesday 21 March, 2017. This year, we are pleased to be working with Tate Exchange, offering two rehearsal days at Tate Modern during half term, featuring collaboration with other young artists, ideas-sharing and performance opportunities.

Animate Artists is designed to offer a more creatively challenging experience than standard Animate Orchestra courses. Young people will be playing at roughly grade 2-3 standard or above, and will be able to use their creativity, knowledge and musicianship skills to help make this performance piece something that is original, and entirely their own.



Tuesday 21 March, 7.30pm

Bonnie Bird Theatre, Laban Building

Creekside, Deptford SE8 3DZ
