About the showFollowing an acclaimed tour, BalletBoyz’ Them/Us makes its West End debut at the Vaudeville Theatre. Witness this innovative double bill by the all-male troupe from 3 June 2019.
Them/Us, a collaboration with Sadler’s Wells, features two components. Them has been devised by the company's dancers themselves while Us is the work of Olivier Award-winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon.
Set to original scores, the pieces explore the question of identity and ask how we position ourselves against that which is “other”.
The BalletBoyz Company is made up of current members Benjamin Knapper, Harry Price, Dominic Rocca, Bradley Waller, Matthew Sandiford and Liam Riddick.
Wheeldon's past credits with BalletBoyz include the lauded Mesmerics. He is the recipient of a Tony Award for Best Choreography for An American in Paris, as well as an OBE and many other accolades.
Talented up and coming composer Charlotte Harding provides the score that underpins the piece Them. Harding also composed for BalletBoyz: Fourteen Days.
Cult singer-songwriter Keaton Henson is responsible for the Us score. The folk rock musician, artist and poet has six studio albums to his names, and previously composed the music for Young Men, a film by BalletBoyz and BBC2.
The ground-breaking Them/Us has been making waves across the country. Witness BalletBoyz' stunning double bill at the Vaudeville Theatre from 3 to 15 June 2019, with a press night on 3 June.
Who Should See It?If you love contemporary ballet and original music, BalletBoyz’ Them/Us is a must-see. Children from the age of seven will find the show an inviting introduction to dance, and those already devoted to dance will love seeing what's happening at the forefront of the genre.
