A new film from Yorke Dance Project, Dance Revolutionaries, celebrating the legacy of choreographers Robert Cohan and Kenneth MacMillan, is set for a UK cinema release on 26 June 2024.

Directed by David Stewart with a cast comprising Dane Hurst, Romany Pajdak, Edd Mitton, Jonathan Goddard, Freya Jeffs, Oxana Panchenko, Benjamin Warbis, the 74-minute film features Robert Cohan's Portraits—a series of five solo dances—and a production of Kenneth MacMillan's Sea of Troubles.

Cohan's film work Portraits explores life’s private moments, collaborating with and creating intimate portraits of each dancer. MacMillan’s Sea of Troubles, inspired by Shakespeare's Hamlet, explores grief, rage, jealousy and the drive for revenge. It is produced and performed by Yorke Dance Project, in partnership with the Royal Ballet and dance artists Romany Pajdak, Dane Hurst, and Jonathan Goddard.

Yolande Yorke-Edgell, producer and artistic director at Yorke Dance Project, said, “with Dance Revolutionaries, we are paying homage to the trailblazing spirit of Cohan and MacMillan, allowing audiences to fully immerse themselves in the movement, connecting to dancers and the drama on a deeper level. We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing these incredible and intimate works to the big screen.”

Dance Revolutionaries will be in select UK cinemas from 26 June 2024. A trailer is available on YouTube.
