Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo
Dancing the fine line between high art and high camp, Les BalletsTrockadero de Monte Carlo delights audiences around the world since the 1970’s.
Parodying classical works from "Swan Lake" to "Giselle" and the choreography of lsadora Duncan, George Balanchine and Martha Graham, theTrocks,
as they are affectionately known, offer irresistible evenings for dance aficionados and complete novices. Combining a loving knowledge of dance with a wicked comedic sensibility, theTrocks offer buoyant and hilarious evenings for young and old.
Though repertoire and casts may change, the original concept of Les BalletsTrockadero de Monte Carlo has remained constant: a company of professional male dancers performing the full range of ballet and modern dance repertoire. The humorous sight of male bodies delicately balancing in toe shoes as swans, sylphs and water sprites-the gleeful leaps, poses and plunges- delight, amuse and serve theTrocks' original purpose: to bring the pleasure of dance to the widest possible audience.
However, this all male company does "more than slapstick and irreverence: They dazzle with their technique as well as the affectionate insider jabs at the foibles of their artform" (Seattle Met). With a new ballet-Act 1 of Don Quxiote-in its repertory, the Trocks continue to delight audiences with their balletic knowledge, unmatched comical approach and spectacular skills en pointe and en travesti.
