This country’s most popular choreographer…takes us unto very dark territory, but the spectacle is never less than theatrical…I suspect that Bourne’s huge and diverse audience will happily follow him to the hell and back
Dorian gives a more compelling account of Dorian’s downfall than Wilde…a serious work, and arguably one that reveals his most sustained theatrical thinking to date
Bourne depicts a most-modern Gray…a brutal comment on modern celebrity and the futility of hedonism…genuinely disconcerting.
