A Summer Adventure
Following our rigorous audition process earlier this year (attended by over 300 dancers, after receiving over 1000 applications) we invited 20 dancers to take part in A Summer Adventure from 22 - 26 August at Rambert Studios, London. Our Summer intensive gave participants a further insight into New Adventures repertoire.
This year’s A Summer Adventure gave a rare opportunity for the invited dancers to work with Artistic Director, Matthew Bourne, Associate Artistic Director, Etta Murfitt and Company dancer, Sam Archer. They worked with the dancers to recreate an early work of Matthew’s called Watch with Mother, due to tour with Early Adventures in 2017. The dancers also had the chance to respond to themes from Matthew’s new work The Red Shoes based on the classic Powell & Pressburger film with music by Bernard Herrmann. The week culminated with an informal sharing.
