29 Jan BBC 2 – Darcey Bussell’s New Dance
Darcey Bussell steps out of the world of ballet to pick two modern dance works that take familiar genres into uncharted territory. Inspired by her own love for crossing boundaries between all forms of dance, Darcey introduces us to the people and pieces that are breaking new ground with original and exciting performances.
Featured here are Olivier Award-winners Boy Blue (aka Kenrick ‘H20’ Sandy and Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante), who have an established reputation for transforming street dance into jaw-dropping theatrical experiences. Emancipation of Expressionism, directed by Oscar-winner Danny Boyle, has taken them even further – onto the GCSE dance curriculum as a key work.
