Applauded across the globe for their stunning live performances, films and TV appearances, BalletBoyz are back with two brand new works, both set to original scores by world-class composers. Marking a first for BalletBoyz, Them is the choreographic debut of the company dancers, created together with key collaborators, under the direction of Artistic Directors Michael Nunn and William Trevitt, and set to a score by emerging composer Charlotte Harding. Us, from Tony Award-winner Christopher Wheeldon, takes its inspiration from his achingly beautiful and critically acclaimed duet which featured in the company’s last show, Fourteen Days. With an extended score by cult singer/songwriter, Keaton Henson, this new work explores the possibilities of before, during and after.
‘It doesn’t matter what they dance. The result is always the same – fantastic’ The Times
‘Dancers soar and rebound off each other’s bodies, orchestrating a paradox of muscular impact and weightless flight that I’ve never seen on stage’ The Guardian
★★★★ ‘Dreamy…immensely watchable…a fantastic piece of dance: thoughtful, fresh and finessed.’ The Guardian ★★★★ ‘Riveting…Compelling…This is rare, precious dance’ The Stage
