Widely regarded as the UK’s most popular and successful choreographer and director, TIME magazine extends the boundaries on that accolade, “Matthew Bourne is the world’s most popular living dance maker.”
For the past 30 years, Matthew has been choreographing and directing dance for musicals, opera,theatre and film. The five-time Olivier Award winner is the only British director to have won the Tony for both Best Choreographer and Best Director of a Musical with Swan Lake in 1999.
I did this sketch of Matthew directing rehearsals for The Car Man sometime ago and since I have had great success getting sketches signed from Sadler’s Wells through the mail, I decided to continue with that process. oddly enough I had just slipped it into the postbox when the man himself walked past me.
