Lord of the Flies

Phoenix Dance Theatre are working in partnership with Matthew’s Bourne’s New Adventures and Bradford Alhambra Theatre to give boys and young men from across Yorkshire and beyond, a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with professional dance artists from Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures.

These will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
