‘Dance Revolutionaries’: A new film celebrating the legacy of dance visionaries Robert Cohan and Kenneth MacMillan

Yorke Dance Project's 'Dance Revolutionaries'.

Yorke Dance Project is set to captivate UK audiences with the release of its remarkable new dance film, Dance Revolutionaries, on 26 June. From Emmy-nominated director David Stewart, the film is a captivating exploration of raw emotion through dance set in stunning locations, with Portraits — a series of five solo dances, and an innovative production of the rarely-seen ballet, Sea of Troubles

The two-part film delves into the emotive world of two dance visionaries, choreographers Robert Cohan and Kenneth MacMillan. 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 with award-winning artists Romany Pajdak, Dane Hurst and Jonathan Goddard, produces and performs this extraordinary journey, providing unprecedented, close-up access to the revolutionary works of Cohan and MacMillan.

Yolande Yorke-Edgell, producer and artistic director at Yorke Dance Project, expressed her pride in the project, stating, “With Dance Revolutionaries, we are paying homage to the trailblazing spirit of Cohan and MacMillan, allowing audiences to fully immerse themselves in the movement, connecting to dancers and the drama on a deeper level. We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing these incredible and intimate works to the big screen.”

Dance Revolutionaries will be in select UK cinemas from 26 June. Watch the trailer below.
