  8. Lord of the Flies opened at the Lowry on Wednesday evening. I saw the performances that night and on Saturday afternoon. It is a wonderful initiative that was started in conjuction with Glasgow city council in 2011 to involve young boys/youths in a dance project. It must be so fulfilling for the boys who took part and if it inspires even one of them to go further with dance then that is a huge achievement in itself. I'm not going to try and describe the performance in detail because Sarah Crompton has done a wonderful job of that in her review in The Telegraph. I had read the book as a teenager and had found it very disturbing with its graphic description of how boys stranded on a desert island try to maintain some sort of order but then gradually descend into chaos and savagery as they try to survive. I must say that I found the production disturbing so Matthew Bourne and Scott Ambler have definitely reflected the book accurately. It is a testament to all the participants that it is so very compelling to watch. I certainly noticed more on Saturday afternoon than I had on the first night and admired very much the performances of all concerned. I totally agree with Ms Crompton that by the end you could not distinguish between the pro dancers and the youngsters involved - in fact in my case it was certainly within the first act that the boundaries disappeared. On Saturday afternoon, after several performances, this was even more the case. It is a dark story darkly and compellingly told.
  9. The tour of Matthew Bourne/New Adventures' Swan Lake opens next week in Plymouth. Could you please put your thoughts on this thread? Ian has linked this article in the Dance Links Forum: http://www.theguardian.com/stage/2013/oct/14/how-we-made-matthew-bourne-swan-lake I first saw this Swan Lake in its opening run at Sadler's Wells in 1995 with no preconceptions other than that I had read so many reviews of previous works that I really wanted to see something by Matthew Bourne. At the time there was a lot of coverage in the dance press of Swan Lake's centenary including some wonderful articles on the histroy of Swan Lake by Giannandrea Poesio. When I saw this Swan Lake for that first time, because I had been reading so much about Swan Lake, it occurred to me that, to me, the structure is very conventional! I still believe that so many years down the line. I would love to hear what other people think about this. The other thing that struck me was how much sense it made to have male swans. I love watching water birds and, beautiful and graceful though they are, I always feel that swans because of their strength (and potential aggressiveness) are masculine birds. I am really looking forward to seeing the production at The Lowry in a couple of weeks. Please do join in the conversation!
