Make some room. Make some noise. Here comes the Talent...
Adam, Anthony, Ed, Leon, Luke, Matt, Miguel and Taylor – the eight remarkable dancers, handpicked from open auditions by BalletBoyz, who star in this explosive feast of exhilarating live dance, cleverly fused with the company’s trademark use of film and behind the scenes footage.
BalletBoyz is one of the most cheekily original and innovative forces in modern dance. Led by former Royal Ballet lead dancers Michael Nunn and William Trevitt, the company thrills audiences and critics the world over with its distinctive style, blending spectacular dance both energetic and graceful, with stunning music and film. In the Talent, they pass the baton to a new generation of dancers in an evening of awesome dance, pure skill and sheer talent.
The Talent features a mixed programme including Russell Maliphant’s mesmerising Torsion, Paul Roberts’ haunting Alpha and the critically-acclaimed Void by Czech choreographer Jarek Cemerek. Paul Roberts has staged dances for artists including Girls Aloud, Pixie Lott and Robbie Williams. Multi award-winner Russell Maliphant has collaborated with such major artists and companies as Sylvia Guillem, Robert Lepage, DV8 and the Michael Clark Company.
