Event description

Description

This June, join a playful and creative dance workshop at IWM London led by Matthew Bourne's New Adventures. You will have the chance to learn choreography from Matthew Bourne’s current show Cinderella, a thrilling and evocative love story set during the Second World War, now touring the UK.

The workshop is part of Cinderella: A Museum Adventure, an exciting day of performances, talks, and workshops for all the family. Inspired by this unique retelling of the classic story, New Adventures' dance artists have been working with primary schoolchildren and older people to create a brand-new piece of dance, which they'll perform in addition to the workshops. The creation will bring local heritage, histories and artefacts to life in pop-up performances in IWM London's Main Atrium. The performances will respond to the wartime stories and photographs in the museum’s collection that evoke themes of family, evacuation and community.

Alternating with the dance performances will be conversations with eyewitnesses, who will share their experiences of being evacuated as a young child during the Second World War.

The same workshop will be running twice as part of this day, once at 12.30pm and once at 2pm, while the full day programme runs from 11am to 4pm. The workshops are open to all ages and abilities and you don't need to have any previous dancing experience. The workshops last around 45 minutes. Participants under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Tickets to the workshops are free, but booking through this page is required, as spaces are limited. The performances and talks, however, are free and drop-in on a first come, first served basis.

As part of the Cinderella: A Museum Adventure programme, New Adventures also holds performances at some of IWM's other branches:
