Streetwise Opera/Trinity Laban Co-Lab

Streetwise Opera works with participants affected by homelessness across the UK.  We are currently working on a collaborative project with Streetwise Opera and Trinity Laban, as part of their CoLab project, where students and performers join forces to create a new dance opera inspired by Shobana’s work. 

This is the second iteration of this partnership, which saw the production of In This Place, a beautiful dance film in 2021, when the whole of the UK was in full lockdown and sessions were conducted online.


“This project has just given me so much confidence to move my body. When we were improvising, it was like all my limbs were loose. That opportunity to express ourselves through every part of our body was liberating. I felt it right inside of me. I remember that feeling, it was almost like ecstasy in a way. I want to thank (SJD) and Jack because they enabled me to be in that situation. I never thought I could do it when we started, now I’m a dancer”



“This has been so amazing, I really never thought of myself as a dancer (at least not a good one!) and now I’ve made my own solo that I actually am proud of – amazing! Thank you!”
