Laban's Deptford location may seem far-flung, but the spacious south-east London spot allowed the venue to call itself the largest purpose-built contemporary dance centre in the world when its new building opened in 2002. Designed by Herzog and de Meuron, the Swiss architects behind Tate Modern, Laban's stunning architecture reflects the challenging contemporary dance the institution advocates. As well as academic courses (BAs and the like), the centre presents an ongoing line-up of experimental, arty shows by its students, as well as visiting companies, in its 350-seat theatre.
