Photo Flash: Exclusive Look at All-Male Comedy Ballet Co Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo
The award-winning all-male comedy ballet company, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (or "The Trocks," as they've become known) heads back to The Peacock with their side-splitting send-ups and hilarious homages to classical ballet.
Broadway World has the exclusive look!
The Trocks' trademark take on the Petipa's masterpieces, storming their way through the second act of Swan Lake and the quirky tale of The Little Humpback Horse, with the company's fabulous sense of fun and their flawless dance. In Trovatiara they take on Verdi in a pirate-based pastiche of traditional opera ballets and is set to delight audience of all ages.
Hailing from New York City, the Trocks are now loved worldwide for their sassy spoofs and hilarious homages to classical ballet and modern dance, where each of the 18 dancers transform into two personas, both male and female.
Every performance frivolously froths with tutus and testosterone, blush-pink ballet pumps, fierce fake eyelashes and hyperbolic prima ballerina attitudes; however, what makes this company extraordinarily special is their immaculate dance technique and daring physicality, surpassed only by their unmatchable comic timing.
During their incredible history, The Trocks have performed in over 600 cities in 38 countries. Following their last UK tour in 2015, The Trocks were nominated for an Outstanding Company Award at the Critics' Circle National Dance Awards (2016, UK) alongside Bolshoi Ballet, English National Ballet, Northern Ballet and Scottish Ballet. The 2018 engagement marks the company's fifteenth visit to the UK and first time in Ireland and follows extensive tours across the USA, Japan and Europe. The Trocks' phenomenon moved from stage to screen in Rebels on Pointe, the first-ever feature documentary celebrating the world famous company. Directed by Bobbi Jo Hart, the film is a glorious and insightful glimpse behind the scenes and received critical acclaim and won numerous awards following its release in 2017.
