Matthew Bourne - Nutcracker ballet
Short excerpts from the Sweetieland section of Matthew Bourne's Nutctracker ballet illustrate his theatrical style. He discusses his background and his motivation for creating dance. He highlights the need to be very clear and focused on what he wishes to convey and the lengths he goes to in order to draw his dancers into understanding the scenarios he wants to create. Bourne explains how his work often has a serious underlying intention onto which the wit and humour are layered.
