Need a little spectacle in your week Vancouver? What about some technical prowess paired with some hilarity? Well you could look further beyond but come hither because I’ve just the thing to spice up your upcoming weekend! Back by popular demand, Show One Productions would like to welcome the world-INFAMOUS Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo back to Vancouver January 20-21 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre!
Les Ballets Trockadero is an all-male, cross-dressing dance troupe formed in 1974. The New York-based company has dedicated their time and efforts in presenting beloved ballet classics with a very tantalizing twist. They have combined the breath-taking and challenging aspects of professional ballet and have injected comedy and parody in the midst. What makes their troupe extremely fun and hilarious to watch? They specifically highlight the accidents, missteps and underlying incongruities of serious dance; so in other words, they celebrate that which people would feel embarrassed about! Now this isn’t a way to ‘hide’ inefficiencies or lack of skill. On the contrary, Les Ballets Trockadero’s all-male cast actually enhances the overall experience rather than taking away from it.
In their over 40 years of performance the dance troupe has continued to strive for excellence, being faithful and attentive to every detail when performing a wide range of dance forms and genres. What makes their performance fun is how the incorporate comedy and what they parody. This time around, they will be performing their re-interpreted versions of ballets which include Swan Lake, La Esmeralda, and Don Quixote.
Les Ballets Trockadero has enjoyed widespread fame, performing in over 30 countries and 500 cities worldwide. Their sauciness paired with technical excellence has won crowds the world over, whatever the age, sex, or culture. They are a performance you do NOT want to miss! They will also be in Toronto February 10-11, and Montreal February 18-19!
