Five thrilling reasons to see BalletBoyz's Them/Us at the Vaudeville Theatre
BalletBoyz returns to London for the West End premiere of Them/Us — here are five reasons not to miss it
Returning to London with its West End premiere, BalletBoyz presents two new works set to original scores, and we are very excited. Playing for a strictly limited season, there are only 16 performances — so don't miss out on your chance to see them.
1. West End premiere!
Even though BalletBoyz was formed in 2000 and has been treading the boards around the world since, the company has never had an official residency in London's West End! Them/Us marks its first production and we can't wait to see it on the Strand at the Vaudeville Theatre.
2. It's a double bill!
Not only do you get to explore the 'dreamy...immensely watchable' (★★★★ The Guardian) individuality of each dancer in Them, created through a unique, collaborative choreographic process by the BalletBoyz dancers, you also get to experience the ‘beautifully crafted' (★★★★ Financial Times) Us which also features the entire company.
3. Award-winning choreographer!
Tony and Olivier Award-winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon is the genius behind the concluding piece, Us. He is best known in London for the 2017 production An American In Paris which was nominated for six WhatsOnStage Awards!
4. The music!
Set to contrasting scores by artist Keaton Henson and composer Charlotte Harding, this inventive double bill asks where we see ourselves in relation to the "other", and explores the fine balance between them and us.
5. The Boyz!
Six strong performers let you enter a world of masculinity, tenderness, fragility of life, passion and an exploration of human connections. BalletBoyz puts on breath-taking productions, but the company's ethos is to inspire, educate and showcase dance in the best possible ways, touring the world to bring its creations to as wide an audience as possible.
