The internationally acclaimed BalletBoyz will be opening a new adaption of their sell-out stage production Young Men at Wilton’s Music Hall this autumn from 13-17 November.
Young Men is an intensely moving production chronicling of the experiences of young soldiers sent to fight in The Great War, through the medium of dance. Uniquely for a dance production, Young Men is a hybrid adaptation of live dance, music and film.
The all-male dance company BalletBoyz will perform sections from the original stage version of Young Men (Sadler’s Wells, 2015) against the backdrop of their Rose d’Or award-winning BBC screen adaptation which saw them become the first ever dance company to present a full-length feature film.
Young Men, a portrayal of love, friendship, loss and survival, is choreographed by award-winning Iván Pérez and features a live version of the score by cult singer-songwriter Keaton Henson.
Applauded the world over for vivid and vital dance productions, BalletBoyz bring this poignant and powerful hybrid of live dance and film to London as part of the final season of 14-18 NOW, which marks the Centenary of the Armistice.
