Matthew Bourne – The Master Storyteller of Modern Dance
“Electrifying entertainment” ★★★★★ Daily Telegraph
Matthew Bourne has been hailed as “the great showman of British dance” by The Daily Telegraph. Since 1987, when he formed his first company, Adventures in Motion Pictures, Bourne has earned international renown as a great storyteller through music and movement. His radical reinterpretations of classic works in ballet, theatre and cinema regularly elicit rave reviews from critics, and enchant audiences of all ages.
Bourne’s Romeo and Juliet is a passionate and contemporary re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic story of love and conflict. Here "difficult" young people are mysteriously confined by a society that seeks to divide them and crush their youthful spirit and individuality. A timeless story of forbidden love, repressed emotions and teenage discovery, filmed live at Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London especially for cinemas.
This ballet film – available for viewing by registration only to a limited audience and for a limited time – is presented alongside a behind-the-scenes video under the PLUS programme, offering a unique insight into the creative process of this thrilling production.
To offer a broader view of Matthew Bourne’s art, for a limited time the HKAF will also screen online recordings of another three career-defining Bourne productions – Cinderella, Swan Lake and The Red Shoes.
