Dance Revolutionaries (PG)

Two Artists Who Revolutionised Dance In The Twentieth Century

Director: David Stewart
UK, 2024, 74 m
Cast: Dane Hurst, Romany Pajdak, Edd Mitton, Jonathan Goddard, Freya Jeffs, Oxana Panchenko, Benjamin Warbis

Dance Revolutionaries is a captivating 74-minute exploration of raw emotion through dance set in stunning locations, showcasing Portraits – five solo dances, and an innovative production of the rarely-seen ballet, Sea of Troubles. From Emmy-nominated director David Stewart, the film explores the emotive world of two dance visionaries: choreographers Kenneth MacMillan and Robert Cohan, who redefined our connection to the art form.

Cohan’s film work Portraits is an intimate series of solos created with award-winning dancers. MacMillan’s Sea of Troubles, inspired by Shakespeare’s Hamlet, poignantly explores universal human emotions of grief, jealousy and the drive for revenge.

Yorke Dance Project, in partnership with the Royal Ballet and award-winning artists, produces and performs this extraordinary journey, providing unprecedented access to the revolutionary works of Cohan and MacMillan.
