As a creative response to Cinderella, a thrilling and evocative love story, set during the Second World War, renowned dance company New Adventures have created three bespoke dance works to be performed at the Imperial War Museum’s sites in London, Manchester and Duxford. At IWM Duxford, on 14 February, Legacy Dance Company, a boy’s dance group created following the UK tour of Matthew Bourne’s production of Lord of The Flies danced under the planes, capturing the lives, excitement and drama of the young men sent to serve at the airfield in the RAF. This piece was choreographed by New Adventures Dance Artist, Sam Archer and Resident Practitioner & Projects Manager, Paul Smethurst.
Here's a mini-doc about the work made by Connor Crowley, a member of the Legacy group!
Our final Cinderella: A Museum Adventure event is taking place on Saturday 23 June at IWM London with performances from an intergenerational group of over 55s from Sadler's Wells' Silver Routes group and Year 5s from Vittoria Primary School. We hope to see you there!
