Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo
April 22, 2018
Venue Matthews Theatre
The “Trocks,” as they are affectionately known, have reigned supreme as the world’s foremost all-male comic ballet troupe, dancing the fine line between high art and high camp. Donning drag to perform their faithful (sort of) renditions that poke fun at the conventions of “serious” dance, they parody classical works from Swan Lake to Giselle, and choreographers from Balanchine to Martha Graham. They’re witty, they’re fun, and they’re masters of combining a real knowledge of ballet with the technical skill needed to perform it, resulting in an irresistible afternoon for dance novices and aficionados alike.
