New Adventures — Matthew Bourne’s Early Adventures


Matthew Bourne returns to his roots for his company's 30th anniversary, featuring a programme of fun and witty pieces that launched his career, with designs by long-time collaborator Lez Brotherston.

Final Programme now confirmed:

Yearning pas de deuxs and pastoral clog-dances feature in Town and Country's post-war vignettes.

Take a trip to Gay Paree with The Infernal Galop, as all the glorious clichés of 30s and 40s Paris are paraded (and can-canned) across the stage.

And return to childhood with Watch with Mother, inspired by Joyce Grenfell's Nursery School sketches and set to Percy Grainger's own piano compositions and arrangements of Bach and Faure, this 1991 piece has not been seen for nearly 25 years.
