(nearest tube: Old Street – Zone 1)

Matthew Bourne is widely hailed as the UK’s most popular and successful Choreographer/Director. He is the creator of the world’s longest running ballet production, a five-time Olivier Award winner, and the only British director to have won the Best Direction of a Musical and Best Choreography. Bourne has been said to be the most audience conscious artist. Bourne does not go into detail about his works because he wants the audience to have their own interpretations of his works.

Matthew Bourne has twice been nominated as Best Director at the Olivier Awards, and his achievements in choreography have been recognised with over 30 international awards, including the Evening Standard Award, The South Bank Show Award, Time Out Award and the Astaire Award for Dance on Broadway. In the 2001 New Years Honours, Bourne was awarded an OBE for Services to Dance and in 2003 he was the recipient of the prestigious Hamburg Shakespeare Prize for the Arts.

Workshop Details

After global success with his inspired interpretations of Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Nutcracker!, Bourne revisits (and reworks) the Tim Burton classic “Edward Scissorhands”
 

The workshop aims to give an insight into how movement is developed using the same tasks and techniques Matthew and his dancers use with an emphasis on performance skills. This condensed glimpse will look at character and narrative specific to Edward Scissorhands. The workshop will include a short technique class, learning repertoire from the production and participants having the opportunity to create their own movement and choreography around themes from the production.

This full day workshop is open to Intermediate, advanced and professional dancers as well as dance students from full-time vocational courses, who are looking to enrich their practice and to those who have particular interest in the style of Matthew Bournes work. Please make sure you have appropriate technical training in order to get the most out of the experience.

Participants must be 16 years of age or over.
