BalletBoyz have announced they will tour their brand new production Life, which will receive its world premiere at London’s Sadler’s Wells on 20th April 2016. The show features new commissions by Javier de Frutos and Pontus Lidberg. After opening at Sadler’s Wells, where BalletBoyz are Associate Artists, the production will embark on a UK tour until June 2016, followed by a tour of the USA in 2017. The piece is co-produced by Sadler’s Wells in association with artsdepot.

Performed by the award-winning all-male company of 10 dancers, the show features an original score and the evening takes an elegant, powerful and provocative look at life and death, presented in BalletBoyz’ inimitable style. After premiering in London the production will tour to: Worthing; London; Oxford; Exeter; Guildford; Yeovil; Edinburgh; Dundee; Southport; Lichfield and Cheltenham. Full listings are below.

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.’
