News November/December 2006


Matthew Bourne and his dance company return to L.A. with EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, a family show based on the film by Tim Burton. Devised, directed and choreographed by Bourne, with music by Terry Davies, the dance theatre piece tells the story of Edward, a boy created by an eccentric inventor who dies leaving Edward to fend for himself. Alone, and with scissors for hands, Edward copes with society for the first time and finds a strange, Technicolor world set in Middle America. A kindly family takes him in and introduces him to other members of the community, who are both frightened and fascinated by his strange appearance. But when the gentle Edward falls in love with his adopted family's daughter, his status as the 'outsider' and his inability to truly connect become heartbreakingly evident.

Bourne's previous works include Swan Lake, Cinderella and Play Without Words.

December 13-31 at the Ahmanson Theatre, 135 N. Grand Ave. Call (213) 628-2772 or visit Deaf community contact DDD (213) 680-4017.
