Edward Scissorhands: Matthew Bourne’s dance version of Tim Burton’s classic

Based on the classic Tim Burton film, Matthew Bourne brings his usual trademark wit and heartfelt storytelling to this magical reinterpretation of the original movie. In a castle high on a hill lives Edward; a boy created by an eccentric inventor. When his creator dies he is left alone and unfinished with only scissors for hands until a kindly townswoman invites him to live with her suburban family. Can Edward find his place in the well-meaning community which struggles to see past his curious appearance to the innocence and gentleness within?

The stage show was filmed live at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff and stars the much-loved New Adventures dancers Liam Mower as Edward and Ashley Shaw as Kim.

This film is part of the World Stage on Screen series.
