Bourne has new identity

New company for stage, film projects titled New Adventures

From Adventures in Motion Pictures to New Adventures: Matthew Bourne has formed a new company for his stage and film projects. The British choreographer is best known here for his staging of “Swan Lake,” which won him Tony Awards for musical direction and choreography in 1999.

Adventures in Motion Pictures, the old company, will continue to tour under the management of Katharine Dore Management. “The Car Man” is Bourne and Dore’s final production together. The contempo restaging of the opera “Carmen” recently embarked on a North American tour, kicking off Aug. 23 at the Ordway Center in St. Paul, Minn.

Bourne’s future work will be created for New Adventures or on a freelance basis. For New Adventures, the director-choreographer is in negotiations with the Royal National Theater in London to launch the company’s inaugural production in the Lyttelton Theater next summer. On a freelance basis, Bourne looks to renew his “My Fair Lady” partnership with Trevor Nunn on a new production of “South Pacific” at the National’s Olivier Theater in December. He also is developing a stage production of “The Little Mermaid” for Disney Theatricals.
