A preview to both of the TV specials on Matthew Bourne over Christmas. This article in the Independent discusses the effect Bourne has had on bringing boys into dance.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>So how has this sea-change come about? Channel 4, in a documentary called Bourne to Dance to be broadcast on Christmas Day, would like to lay the responsibility at the feet of Matthew Bourne, the choreographer whose 1995 production of Swan Lake redefined the role of the male dancer by gender-switching that most famously feminine of ballet images: the swan. The programme is presented by Bourne, and – using archive performance clips and a variety of specialist opinion – pieces together a chronology of men in dance that is part textbook history, partly a collation of Bourne's personal heroes.<P><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://enjoyment.independent.co.uk/theatre/dance/story.jsp?story=110577" TARGET=_blank> <B> MORE </B> </A>
