BalletBoyz have announced that they will tour their brand new production, Life, which will debut at London’s Sadler’s Wells in April.
The show features new commissions by Javier de Frutos and Pontus Lidberg. After opening at Sadler’s Wells where BalletBoyz are associate artists, the production will embark on a UK tour, crossing the pond to the USA next year.
Life is co-produced by Sadler’s Wells in association with artsdepot.
Performed by the award-winning all-male company of ten dancers, the show features an original score. The piece takes an elegant, powerful and provocative look at life and death, presented in BalletBoyz’ inimitable style.
Javier de Frutos said: “I’m thrilled to be working with BalletBoyz again. This time the subject is LIFE and inevitably Death, an intoxicating cocktail, and this is a company of exquisite ingredients and one of a kind in the Dance World so I’m looking forward to the exhilarating experience that it is creating work with them!”
Pontus Lidberg said: “I’m truly excited to be creating for one of the world’s most forward thinking dance companies. Working with BalletBoyz on this new piece is proving to generate engaging material and ideas.”
