Michael Nunn and William Trevitt - former dancers with The Royal Ballet - founded their all-male company Balletboyz in 2000. The company has since won multiple awards and has produced several acclaimed television projects, including The Rough Guide to Choreography (Channel 4), The Royal Ballet in Cuba (More4) and Balletboyz: The Rite of Spring (BBC Three), as well as creating the digital work for Christopher Wheeldon's Electric Counterpoint (The Royal Ballet).
World Premie (Sadlers Wells). BalletBoyz are back with a brand new show, performed by an all-male company of ten amazing dancers who perform to a mesmerizing and evocative original musical score. Featuring two new commissions by internationally acclaimed choreographers Pontus Lidberg and Javier de Frutos, Life takes an elegant, powerful and provocative look at life and death, presented in the inimitable BalletBoyz style.
The King, Odysseus (performed by Christopher Tandy) separated from his family for ten years of brutal war, faces another ten year struggle to return home, as a reckless God (performed by Jonathan Goddard) drags him on an epic journey across oceans to strange lands and the darkness beyond. Immortal beauties, shape shifters, monsters and sorcerers both guide and torment the king as he hurtles towards a savage and desperate reunion with his Queen. Mark Bruce Company present a vision of a broken world, from faded New York pageants to islands of fantasy; brutal seas, battlefields and a gateway to Hades. This new dance theatre production is set to music ranging from Mozart to Mark Lanegan; Sacred Arias to The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and an originally composed score. This Odyssey is of now - contemporary horror and fantasy splintering from ancient myth, the themes universal: how we face our mortality and the driving force of the Gods inside us.
Once upon a time there was a speedy hare who never stopped talking about how fast he could run. Tired of being teased for his slowness, Tortoise challenged him to a race. No one thought he could win, but life is full of surprises! Bringing this much-loved Aesop's fable to life, Tortoise & the Hare is the perfect opportunity for little ones to enjoy live ballet, music and theatre, in a child-friendly 40-minute production.
Contemporary dance. Richard Alston, Artistic Director of The Place, the UK's leading centre for contemporary dance, is internationally recognised as one of the most influential and inspiring choreographers in British dance.
Fresh from celebrating its 20th Anniversary, Richard Alston Dance Company leaps into its third decade with characteristic panache, and a programme of works bearing the Alston hallmarks of musicality and grace.Associate Choreographer Martin Lawrance, creator of Madcap and Burning, brings his latest work Stronghold. Made to an intense score by Julia Wolfe, Stronghold sees all ten dancers cutting through the space with gusto. Alston's newest work Mazur is a tribute to the music of Chopin, particularly his Mazurkas, in which he expressed his longing for his Polish homeland. Mazur received a 5 star review in the Financial Times on its premiere in London. Brisk Singing celebrates the music of Jean Phillippe Rameau, genius of the French baroque. Alston has revived this uplifting dance for 8 dancers, carried along by the warmth and lightness of spirit in Rameau's music.
