The BalletBoyz have announced the tour dates for Life, which will premiere at London’s Sadler’s Wells in April.
Featuring new commissions by Javier de Frutos and Pontus Lidberg, the evening takes what will no doubt be an interesting and provocative look at life and death.
Javier de Frutos said: “I’m thrilled to be working with BalletBoyz again. This time the subject is life and inevitably death, an intoxicating cocktail, and this is a company of exquisite ingredients and one of a kind in the dance world so I’m looking forward to the exhilarating experience that it is creating work with them!”
Pontus Lidberg said: “I’m truly excited to be creating for one of the world’s most forward thinking dance companies. Working with BalletBoyz on this new piece is proving to generate engaging material and ideas.”
