DANCE COMING TO BRADFORD THEATRES - GRUPO CORPO AND EDWARD SCISSORHANDS

Bradford Theatres are pleased to announce that they will be hosting two world-class dance productions.  From a Brazilian carnival to a spectacular modern fairytale, bookings are now open for Grupo Corpo and Matthew Bourne's Edward Scissorhands.  Both productions will be visiting Bradford exclusively and will not be showing at any other venues in Yorkshire.

Brazil's internationally acclaimed dance company Grupo Corpo will visit the Alhambra Theatre on Friday 24 & Saturday 25 October 2014.  With a history stretching back nearly 40 years, Grupo Corpo's 22 dancers combine the precision of classical ballet with the sensuality and passion of Latin dance rhythms.  Grupo Corpo translates as Group Body, reflecting the movement style of the dancers, who co-ordinate to fill the stage with unmatched energy and excitement.  Artistic director Rodrigo Pederneiras has taken inspiration from life in rural Brazil.  Watch the dancers sweep across the stage, moving rhythmically from group to solo and back again.  There are moments of utter peace and stillness and others of raucous Brazilian carnival.  In another piece, the choreography takes its inspiration from a Portuguese song cycle and focuses on a group of women who lament the departure of their lovers.  Dressed in intricately patterned and colourful bodysuits, the dancers move as waves; the ebb and flow of their bodies mimicking the calm and fury of the sea. 

Edward Scissorhands, devised, directed and choreographed by Matthew Bourne will make a welcome return to the Alhambra Theatre from Tuesday 24 - Saturday 28 February 2015. Based on the classic Tim Burton film and featuring the beautiful and unforgettable music by Danny Elfman and Terry Davies, this ballet is a touching love story that tells the bittersweet tale of a boy created by a lonely inventor who dies leaving him alone and unfinished. Left with only scissors for hands, Edward must find his place in a strange suburban world where the well meaning community struggle to see past his appearance to the innocence and gentleness within.

Grupo Corpo run from Friday 24 & Saturday 25 October 2014 | Tickets: £18 - £25

Matthew Bourne's Edward Scissorhands runs from Tuesday 24 - Saturday 28 February 2015 | Tickets: £16 - £35
