Yorke Dance Project Artistic Director Yolande Yorke-Edgell will bring her “dance company of exceptional super beings” (The Guardian) to Bournemouth early next month with contemporary ballet mixed bill Rewind Forward.
This exhilarating showcase of dance will bring some of the best choreography of the past, present and future to the Pavilion Dance stage featuring:
– A rare reconstruction of, legend of 20th century ballet, Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s 1988 Sea of Troubles, inspired by Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
– Untethered, a new work by Yolande Yorke-Edgell.
– Self, a new work by Royal Ballet Young Choreographer, Charlotte Edmonds featuring a new musical composition from Donna McKevitt.
– Lacrymosa by world renowned choreographer, Robert Cohan, set to music by Dmitri Yanov-Yanovsky.
Speaking about Rewind Forward, David Mead of Seeing Dance said:
“Rewind Forward sums up Yorke Dance Project’s latest programme extremely well. Rewinding, there’s a reconstruction of Kenneth MacMillan’s take on Hamlet, his 1988 Sea of Troubles, originally made for Dance Advance, an ensemble of former members of The Royal Ballet. Looking forward there are new works by 19-year old Charlotte Edmonds, who clearly has much to look forward to, as do we, and artistic director Yolande Yorke-Edgell. Toss in Robert Cohan’s latest duet, and you have an imaginative and often fascinating mix from an excellent ensemble that is definitely worth catching.“
