What's this? What's this? Danny will be channelling his inner Jack Skellington as he joins the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra on stage to bring to life the music from films including The Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice and Alice In Wonderland. Illustrated by Tim's original sketches and storyboards, the concerts explore the collaborative relationship between music and film. "One wonderful thing about Tim Burton is that he doesn't need to make sense," Danny told i-D when he brought the retrospective to London at the start of the year. Discussing becoming Jack, getting over stage fright, and learning that teamwork makes the dream work.
