The HKAF presents the online streaming of a specially curated series of films, featuring landmark productions by the choreographer The Daily Telegraph calls “the great showman of British dance”. 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.

Matthew Bourne—The Master Storyteller of Modern Dance

“Witty, menacing, lyrical and wild” ★★★★★ Daily Telegraph (on Swan Lake)

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 Swan Lake uses 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.

This ballet film—available for viewing only by registration to a limited audience and for a limited time—is presented alongside a behind-the-scene 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, Romeo and Juliet and The Red Shoes.
