Michael Nunn and William Trevitt, collectively known as the BalletBoyz, have been hailed as pioneers for making dance accessible and reaching a wider audience through their celebrated stage and television work. They became Associate Artists at Sadler’s Wells in 2005.
Young Men is a full-length production from BalletBoyz. In an intensely moving portrayal of love, friendship, loss and survival, Young Men explores the theme of war and the bonds that develop between the men consumed by it. Drawing inspiration from images of conflict through the ages, the production is a compelling hybrid of dance, theatre and screen performance from the ever-inventive BalletBoyz.
Opening the Sadler’s Wells 2015 programme, Young Men was choreographed by rising star Iván Pérez and featured a newly-commissioned original score from the cult singer songwriter Keaton Henson.
