Thrust into the midst of going it alone as a company, some brave EncoreEast members wanted to try their hands at choreography the journey proved to be both exciting, challenging and in many ways highly successful.
On the 12th January 2019 I celebrated my 70th birthday with a surprise outing to Sadler’s Wells to see Mathew Bourne’s production of The Red Shoes. Little did we know then this would be our last theatre outing for 17 months. How fitting, that our first visit to the theatre was to Sadler's Wells to see ENO’s World Premiere of REUNION
Matthew Bourne’s swans are male, at times funny, always powerful, make dramatic use of gravity and ultimately vicious. Learning short sections of the repertoire was magical, inspiring and proved the transformative power of dance.
