In 1928, Maurice Ravel wrote Bolero in Paris. In 1984, Torvill and Dean danced to it at the Winter Olympics in Sarajevo. Eight years later the stadium where they won gold was bombed. Working with the music as a bridge between these two stories, Michael takes a journey from Paris to Sarajevo, from 1914 to 1994, from the First World War to the Bosnian War to the present day.

Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and the British Council, Bolero is a co-production between Nottingham Playhouse, ODA Theatre (Pristina) and Sarajevo War Theatre. Developed at Dance4, the National Ice Centre and Primary with support from Loughborough University and the University of Lincoln. Bolero began life as part of Making Tracks.
