Keaton Henson Scores BalletBoyz 'Them/Us'

Them Us Keaton.jpg

The critically acclaimed BalletBoyz have returned to Sadlers Wells with an evening featuring two new works, ‘Them and Us’. Set to contrasting scores by artist Keaton Henson and composer Charlotte Harding, this inventive double bill asks where we see ourselves in relation to the “other,” and explores the fine balance between them and us.

Them, the first half of the show, is created through a unique, collaborative choreographic process by the BalletBoyz company dancers. The piece explores the individuality that resides within each dancer and the versatility of movement which the company has always been known for. Them proves to be an exciting culmination of the experience the company has gained after 20 years of working with leading choreographers, designers, composers and artists.

Tony and Olivier Award-winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon concludes the evening with Us, exploring human connections and culminating in the tender duet which premiered in 2017 to public acclaim. Featuring all BalletBoyz dancers, the piece presents the company at its powerful best, accompanied by an original score by established BalletBoyz composer, Keaton Henson.

Tickets are available for the UK tour here.
