Laura Trevail

Laura Trevail is a freelance artist and writer. She makes things that move about, and things that threaten to do so when they probably oughtn’t.

Laura trained as an apprentice to Kneehigh Theatre before gaining a 1st class Honours Degree in Theatre and Visual Art at the University of Brighton. That was a long time ago.

More recent work includes projects with Barbara Steveni (including 3 major Steveni/Latham/APG events at the Tate Britain and in Edinburgh and Glasgow), COD dance (with whom she was nominated for a Dance Screen award), The Eden Project, Wildworks and the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, and a solo exhibition at Viewfinder Photography Gallery, Greenwich.

She is a founder member of The Society of Wonders, and has worked on every Society of Wonders live show, creating work for the National Review of Live Art, Duckie, Lovebox, The Museum of Childhood, Home Live Art, Feast on the Bridge, Arrivano Del Mare (Italy), The Shunt Vaults, The Oxo Tower, The V&A, South London Gallery and the Royal National Theatre.

Laura works regularly with SLGP, happy to get her hands mucky as production manager, or her brain mucky as a writer.
