Good news feels a little hard to come by these days. So it’s exciting to see the critically acclaimed, award winning BalletBoyz 20th anniversary celebrations continuing with an online presentation of Deluxe by Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London.
Sadler’s Wells will showcase Deluxe as part of new Digital Stage – a free online performance platform, created in response to the cancellation of shows across its theatres as part of efforts to curb the spread of Covid-19.
Deluxe will form part of the launch on Friday 27 March 2020, World Theatre Day, which can be accessed via Sadler’s Wells Facebook page at 7.30 pm and will be available for seven days – so mark this in your diaries!
Just as Covid-19 was starting to hit London, we interviewed BalletBoyz Artistic Directors, former Royal Ballet Dancers Michael Nunn and William Trevitt. Michael and William talk in this podcast about leaving The Royal Ballet after 12 years to create their own company and moving from classical to modern dance. They also look back at the pieces that are special to the company, talk about their studio process and share what makes a BalletBoyz dancer.
With a long history of dance filmmaking, Michael and William talk about making the stunning Romeo and Juliet, winning the Palm d’Or, and their next dance film project (you’ll have to listen to find out which classical ballet they’re taking to the screen next!).
Listen to the Artistic Directors talk about the choreographers of the two pieces in Deluxe – Shanghai-based dancer and choreographer Xie Xin and Punchdrunk choreographer Maxine Doyle.
We’re so excited that Deluxe is coming to Sadler’s Wells Digital Stage on 27 March 2020 at 7.30pm.
