Deluxe – BalletBoyz
Click here to watch :  Marquee TV

Celebrating their 20th anniversary year of Balletboyz, Deluxe fuses the work of some of the world’s most exciting and innovative choreographers and composers. Chinese dancer and choreographer Xie Xin creates a work set to an original score by composer Jiang Shao-feng, whilst Maxine Doyle (Punchdrunk) collaborates with jazz musician and composer Cassie Kinoshi, of the Mercury-nominated SEED Ensemble.

The results, as always with the all-male dance troupe Balletboyz, is exciting, energising and innovative. Here are both new pieces, quite different from one another, but both demonstrating the trademark precision and body awareness that has always characterised Michael Dunn and William Trevitt’s wonderful ensemble.

    From the minute on YT that you link there is little innovative about this. It is certainly watchable, but has none of the originality I saw more than 20 years ago in the remarkable Jean-Pierre Perreault.

    As for the other link, if I watched everything Ruth Leon recommended, |I would be bankrupt by now, so I never bother. Has she found anything free yet? What’s the game here?
