Choreographers and composers complete swift balancing act
Formed in 2001, BalletBoyz have become an international sensation, performing all over the world and picking up a slew of awards and accolades. Challenging ballet clichés, the group are credited with introducing the dance form to new audiences through their refreshing approach and innovative productions. This month, you can catch one of their stunning live performances at Cambridge Arts Theatre, when they perform their latest offering Fourteen Days on both 22 and 23 October.
The first half of the production sees the fruits of the labours of choreographers Javier de Frutos, Craig Revel Horwood, Iván Pérez and Christopher Wheeldon and composers Scott Walker, Joby Talbot, Charlotte Harding and Keaton Henson when they were given just 14 days to create a piece. Playing with the concept of balance and imbalance, the result is an exciting and varied programme of dance and music.
The second segment of the evening, entitled Fallen, was choreographed by Russell Maliphant and is set to a powerful score by French film composer Armand Amar. The piece won the National Dance Award for Best Modern Choreography in 2013. Tickets start at £23.
