London’s Tate Modern is broadcasting live into regional cinemas around Britain for the first time ever on June 3 as part of its ongoing “Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs” exhibition.
The one-off screening of Matisse Live will take place in over 100 theatres, offering a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the popular exhibition and the artist’s world.
The HD film, presented by Francine Stock and Tate director Nick Serota, features performances by Royal Ballet principal dancer Zenaida Yanowsky and jazz musician Courtney Pine.
Rare archive footage of the famous artist at work and interviews with his friends have also been incorporated into the film, with actor Simon Russell Beale bringing Matisse’s own words to life.
