ARU Magic Me - ARCH Project - Dare To Imagine

12 Dare To Imagine New Adventures Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures is an iconic, ground-breaking British dance-theatre company, famous for telling stories with a unique theatrical twist. Since 1987 New Adventures has changed the popularity of dance in Britain, creating works that have altered the perception of what is possible when it comes to telling stories without words. As well as producing award-winning work which has dazzled and delighted audiences across the globe, New Adventures is passionate about the development of emerging talent and is committed to playing a meaningful role in diversifying the dance landscape for future generations. Our Take Part programme reaches thousands each year through transformative workshops and masterclasses to schools and communities across Britain; and through Green Adventures we are also proud to be regarded as sector leaders in environmental sustainability, driving best practice in green initiatives across the performing arts. The project with Magic Me continues our work with care home residents. In 2015 New Adventures partnered with Dementia Pathfinders to collaborate and create Dance For Life, a programme delivering dance workshops in care homes across the southeast to residents with diverse types and stages of dementia, their carers and family members. The Dance Artists underwent training in dementia awareness for dancers with skilled practitioners from Dementia Pathfinders.
