Matthew Bourne - The Master Storyteller of Modern Dance
A unique insight into the creative process behind the multiple award-winning productions of a genius of modern dance. 

“Dance-theatre marvel, Matthew Bourne… one of dance’s true originals”
★★★★ The 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. 

To complement the special in-venue screening of a new film of Bourne’s The Red Shoes, the HKAF presents, for online streaming, a specially curated series of films of his landmark productions. Assembled by the creative team of his current company, New Adventures, , the series - available for viewing only by registration to a limited audience and for a limited time - is presented alongside three behind-the-scene videos under the PLUS programme, offering a unique insight into the creative process behind each production.    

The series begins with Bourne’s 1995 radical re-imagining of Swan Lake, using the original Tchaikovsky score but with an all-male cast of dancers for the swans. This production has won more than 30 international awards, and holds the record for the longest running ballet both in London’s West End and on Broadway.  Bourne’s Cinderella, set to Prokofiev’s score, had its world premiere in London in 1997 and sets the story amid the chaos of the Second World War. Bringing us up to date is the film of his 2019 Romeo and Juliet for the millennial generation, described by The Stage as a “seismic youthquake”.  Don’t miss this rare opportunity to gain a unique insight into the mind of a genius of modern dance.
