Matthew Bourne in China
Published 8 March 2012 by RM

Matthew Bourne recently flew over to Xiamen, China to start a 6 week residency programme in association with British Council and PRS For Music Foundation.

Throughout Matt's residency he'll have the opportunity to meet and collaborate with local musicians from the surrounding area, including Gulangyu Island (AKA 'Piano Island').

Before he left, Matt purchased a video camera so he could capture a little of this incredible experience for us at home. You can watch (and read) all about Matt's trip over on his blog.
