Dance Consortium are thrilled to welcome Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (affectionately known as The Trocks) back to the UK!
Trailblazing comedy ballet company, The Trocks started out in 1974 as a downtown New York drag act in the wake of the Stonewall Riots. Nearly 50 years on, The Trocks are known and loved worldwide for their hilarious parodies of the conventions of classical ballet. Over those years they have shared their signature style and message of equality and inclusion with audiences, providing a stage for dancers often under-represented in ballet, whether that be due to sexual orientation, gender identity, size, class, race or ethnicity.
"Every time the curtain opens, we represent progress for equality. We just do it dancing."
This is The Trocks’ seventeenth visit to the UK, and their sixth tour presented by Dance Consortium. We are looking forward to welcoming the company’s 16 extraordinary dancers – who hail from China, Cuba, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the US – when they land in the UK later this year!
