Pre-Performance Lecture: Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo

March 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The McGillicuddy Humanities Center presents a pre-performance lecture by D Granke, assistant professor in the UMaine School of Performing Arts Division of Theatre, a director, fight director, intimacy director, and theatre movement specialist.

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, the world’s foremost all-male comic ballet company,  brings its internationally beloved troupe of dancers to the CCA as part of its landmark 50th anniversary season featuring gems from across the company’s groundbreaking repertoire.  Founded in New York City in 1974, the company, affectionately known as the Trocks, has grown from its roots in late-late shows in off-off Broadway lofts to a global touring sensation, performing from Tokyo to Toronto and everywhere in between.  The company dances en travesti with razor-sharp wit and breathtaking pointe work, performing polished parodies of works that span the classical ballet canon.  Revered by ballet aficionados as well as by those who don’t know a plié from a jeté, 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.” (Sydney Star Observer).

D Granke’s pre-performance lecture is free and open to the public. Tickets for Les Ballets Trockadero begin at $27 for adults and $16 for K-12 students, including all fees.
