Rehearsal images have been released for the world premiere of Them/Us presented by the internationally acclaimed all-male dance troupe BalletBoyz ahead of their new UK tour, from 23 February to 28 April, and one-week residency at London’s Sadler’s Wells from 5 to 9 March, 2019.
A co-production with Sadler’s Wells, Them/Us is an innovative double bill and celebrates a brand new collaboration from the company’s own critically acclaimed dancers and the Tony and Olivier Award-winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon.
BalletBoyz, applauded worldwide for their ground-breaking live shows, films and TV appearances, will also be collaborating in a one-off exclusive performance with the global pop sensation Olly Alexander of Years & Years on BBC 1’s The Greatest Dancer on Saturday 9 February, from 7.35pm.
The new productions Them/Us are both set to original scores by world-class composers and ask where we see ourselves in relation to the “other”. Them uniquely marks the first ever production in the company’s 19-year history to be created solely by BalletBoyz’ own in-house talent. Set and developed in tandem to music by composer Charlotte Harding, Them stems from the ethos and origins behind BalletBoyz, for the dancers to be intimately involved in the creative process.
