A year in development, BalletBoyz will present an excerpt of its much anticipated new full length show Young Men as part of an evening of dance at The Roundhouse.
Drawing inspiration from images of war through the ages, and particularly the First World War, Young Men explores the theme of war and the bond that forms between the men that train and fight together. Choreographed by Iván Pérez with an original score by composer and musician Keaton Henson the show features film and projection by BalletBoyz.
Winners of the 2013 National Dance Award for Best Independent Company, BalletBoyz have revolutionized dance presentation formats and are at the forefront of digital dance creation.
The evening will also feature the Company’s award winning double bill Serpent / Fallen for the final time, in London at the Roundhouse, by leading British choreographers Liam Scarlett and Russell Maliphant with live music performed by BBC Concert Orchestra.
Young Men will be conducted by Keaton Henson.
Nicola Thorold, Executive Producer at the Roundhouse, has written a blog post about the 14-18 NOW season featuring BalletBoyzYoung Men here.
