On Thursday 13 July at 5pm
Mercia Walk, Woking Town Centre (next to Christ Church)
Dance woking is delighted to be once again partnering with Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures to bring you ‘Doorstep Duets’ to Woking. There will be a FREE to watch, public performance at 5pm in Woking Town Centre. Returning for a third summer, Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures, in partnership with Farnham Maltings, brings Doorstep Duets to communities across the South East. Featuring New Adventures dancers, the Doorstep Duets programme showcases original choreography by upcoming artists in outdoor spaces and non-traditional performance venues, bringing the joy and wonder of dance to all.
Glenn Graham, Resident Artist, and acclaimed New Adventures company dancer has created Back to Us; a new work that explores the importance of friendship and the need for connection.
In a small town there are three best friends. They are companions, a team, a crew, and their entire world revolves around each other. School, relationships, and family, together they can face it all. But as they grow up, life tests their connection as they are separated and forced to face the tests of love, compassion, and loyalty.
There are friendships that endure and there are friendships that fade away; either way they make us who we are.
Glenn Graham has been passionate about taking dance work into the community since starting his career at New Adventures back in 2003, he feels that everyone should experience the power of expression through movement, giving people insight to their creative mind.
“Doorstep Duets is a programme that means such a lot to me. I didn’t get to experience anything like this growing up, so to have the opportunity to share my ideas through the joy of dance with local communities is such as honour”
Sam McCaffrey CEO/Artistic Director, Dance Woking, “We are delighted to be working with Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures again this summer, to be able to tour this amazing dance company to bring joy and inspire communities. Thursday 13 July sees the company visit 3 schools, an assisted living centre and finish the day with a public performance in Woking Town Centre. As a charity, Dance Woking is able to support this initiative as we are supported by Woking Borough Council and Surrey Community Foundation“.
