UMass Amherst Fine Arts Center

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo on Tuesday, April 2, 7:30 pm

Fine Arts Center Concert Hall, 151 Presidents Drive, Amherst, MA. 01003

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, or "The Trocks," have taken a playful approach to classical ballet since 1974. One part parody and one part loving homage, The Trocks simultaneously honor the traditions of ballet with high-level performance while also poking fun at the conventions that define ballet. An all-male company, The Trocks revel in playing with gender roles and identity. As a 40-year old company, the Trocks illustrate how decades of exploring and challenging a genre can still be fun and celebratory at the same time.
