Dance Revolutionaries + Q&APG

Dane Hurst and director Dave Stewart will join us and Amanda Britton, Principal and Artistic Director of Rambert School for a post-film Q&A in the cinema.

Dance Revolutionaries is a captivating 75-minute exploration of raw emotion through dance set in stunning locations, showcasing Portraits — five solo dances, and an innovative production of the rarely-seen ballet, Sea of Troubles inspired by Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

The film explores the emotive world of two dance visionaries: choreographers Kenneth MacMillan and Robert Cohan, who redefined our connection to the art form.

Cohan’s pandemic-inspired solos explore life’s intimate moments, creating a self-portrait of the choreographer through his dancers. MacMillan’s Sea of Troubles, inspired by Shakespeare’s Hamlet, poignantly explores universal human emotions of grief, rage, jealousy and the drive for revenge.

Yorke Dance Project, in partnership with the Royal Ballet, and with award-winning artists Romany Pajdak, Dane Hurst, and Jonathan Goddard, produces and performs this extraordinary journey, providing unprecedented access to the revolutionary works of Cohan and MacMillan.
