Direct from New York, Les Ballets Eloelle's Artistic Director of the 2007 smash hitmen In Tutu’s Victor Trevino brings back to Australia his hilarious production Men in Pink Tights.
From the thrilling pirouettes of the male dancers, in drag, with brilliant and innovative choreography to side splitting humour, all presented in specially-designed lavish costumes. Victor Trevino’s hit Men in Pink Tights is a show designed for male, female, young and old. This production is the ultimate send up of both classical and contemporary ballet. The combination of brilliant dancing technique, tongue in cheek and blatant humour with intentional foibles, dancing mishaps and of course hissy fits by men playing both male and female roles (some of the men do actually look like gorgeous women, while others are hairy chested men with pancake makeup but all in tutus dancing on perfect Pointe) creates great entertainment.
Les Ballets Eloelle is one of the few all male comedy ballet companies in the world. Its mission is to create, to present, to preserve and to extend comedic repertoire of classical and contemporary dancing, through performances of the highest quality, presented to the widest possible audience. Artistic Director Victor Trevino said: "Les Ballets Eloelle is committed to the core art form of ballet and promoting it through the comedic tradition of male comedy ballet".
Les Ballets Eloelle's Men in Pink Tights boasts over fifty classical ballets in its repertoire and twenty of the best international male ballet dancers from 13 countries.
