Case study:New Adventures
For over 30 years Matthew Bourne and New Adventures have delighted, inspired and nurtured people of all ages and backgrounds: audiences, artists and the next generation. New Adventures makes outstanding dance productions which tour nationally and internationally, push the boundaries of dance and storytelling and are accessible to new audiences who may not consider dance or theatre as for them. New Adventures takes a holistic approach to staging outstanding new work which integrates talent development into the productions, inspiring and providing pathways into the dance industry for the next generation of young dancers. In 2019, Achates worked with New Adventures to support the organisation in developing a new model to support its national touring programme and optimising its long-term impact in the communities in which it works. This model continues to be developed in response to the impact of Covid-19.
