Part of Hancher's 51st season

We'll get straight to the pointe: The Trocks are exceptional ballet dancers. They are also exceptionally funny. 

From late-late shows in Off-Off Broadway lofts in the early 1970s to major dance houses around the world, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo—the world's foremost all-male ballet comic ballet company—offers both homage and parody performed en travesti. The Sydney Star Observer says the Trocks are "a guaranteed hoot for people who know nothing of ballet and an absolute must for those who think they know the originals." 

The program will include works from across the company's 50 years including their signature ballets Swan Lake Act II: Le Lac Des Cygnes and The Dying Swan.
