Announcing the return of Doorstep Duets

14 June 2023


Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures, in partnership with Farnham Maltings, is delighted to announce the return of Doorstep Duets, touring to communities across the South East this summer from 11 July to 5 August 2023.

Returning for a third year, Doorstep Duets showcases original choreography by upcoming artists in outdoor spaces and non-traditional performance venues, bringing the joy and wonder of dance to all. Performances begin on 11 July at Farnham Maltings, before visiting Essex, Suffolk, Kent, Surrey, and Eastbourne.

This year, choreographer Glenn Graham has created, Back to Us. This original dance piece explores the importance of friendship and the need for connection and features New Adventures dancers: Ben Brown, Benjamin Barlow Bazeley, Jade Copas, and Hannah Hernandez.

Performances will take place at schools, care homes, libraries, parks, high streets, marinas, festivals and on doorsteps. Please see listings for public performances.

Glenn joined New Adventures as a performer in 2003, making his debut in Nutcracker! and was last seen in The Car Man at the Royal Albert Hall in 2022. Glenn is a New Adventures Resident Artist and mentor to New Adventures’ Emerging Artists. Back to Us is Glenn’s choreographic debut for New Adventures.

Doorstep Duets is a programme that means such a lot to me. I didn’t get to experience anything like this growing up, so to have the opportunity to share my ideas through the joy of dance with local communities is such an honour.
