In the meantime, here's some wonderful dance to entertain you for a few hours over the holidays.
Firstly, Matthew Bourne's Christmas, a spectacular review of Bourne's 25 year career, from well-known blockbusters like Swan Like and Nutcracker! to his earliest work. If you think dance is just stuffy nonsense, watch this and be proved wrong.
Then moving behind the scenes, Balletboyz: Next Generation is a fascinating glimpse into the lives of an elite troupe of male dancers put together by Michael Nunn and William Trevit, culminating in a trip to Ethopia for a history-making collaboration with local dancers. It reminded me very much of the Performance In Place of War work, as regards the power of the arts to bring people together and overcome adversity.
