Bourne to bring back Lord of the Flies

After a successful run at Glasgow’s Theatre Royal in March this year, it has been announced that choreographer Matthew Bourne is planning a ‘super production’ of his Lord of the Flies ballet at London’s Sadler’s Wells in 2013.

In Glasgow, a group of local young men and boys, who were new to dance, appeared alongside professional ballet dancers, and Bourne now plans to expand on the original project by staging a version of the show with youths from up to four cities.
The selected performers from each location will stage their own productions of the show in their respective areas, before coming together to rehearse for a largescale version at Sadler’s Wells.
Further details are yet to be announced.
