Matthew Bourne's New Adventures & Re:Bourne
Join two New Adventures & Re:Bourne Dance Artists to experience the unique, storytelling style of Matthew Bourne. Open to all ages and abilities, you will get to learn choreography from some of his most celebrated work and have the opportunity to create a little something of your own. Mixing popular appeal with a ground-breaking, unique theatrical language, world class dancers and high-quality production values, New Adventures is one of the great success stories of British theatre. Investing in the future of dance and theatre, Re:Bourne, the charitable arm of New Adventures, was formed in 2008. Every year Re:Bourne engages in inclusive projects with thousands of people of all ages and ability, as well as emerging artists across the UK and around the world. This summer at Camp Bestival New Adventures & Re:Bourne will be delivering workshops across the site based on Matthew Bourne’s production of The Red Shoes and Cinderella. The Red Shoes is based on the film by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger with music by Bernard Hermann. This world premiere has been touring the UK to sold-out audiences since November 2016 and has since been awarded two Olivier Awards. A beloved fairytale and Academy Award-winning movie, The Red Shoes has seduced audiences and inspired generations of dancers with its tale of obsession, possession and one girl’s dream to be the greatest dancer in the world. Victoria Page lives to dance but her ambitions become a battleground between the two men who inspire her passion. Returning this Winter to Sadler’s Wells, London, which will be followed by a nationwide tour throughout 2017, Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella is a thrilling and evocative love story, set in London during the Second World War. This revival forms part of the company’s 30th anniversary celebrations and Bourne’s interpretation of the classic fairy tale, has, at its heart, a true war-time romance. A chance meeting results in a magical night for Cinderella and her dashing young RAF pilot, together just long enough to fall in love before being parted by the horrors of the Blitz.
