The Trocks, by Graham Watts for Dance Tabs

By Graham Watts

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (more commonly known as The Trocks) is an all-male comedy dance ensemble founded in 1974.   Based in New York, the company tours extensively and has a huge fan base around the world, not least in Japan and here in the UK.   The Trocks begin another Dance Consortium tour with the first performance at The Lowry in Salford on 29thJanuary.   They then visit Birmingham, Canterbury, Nottingham, Bradford, Brighton, Newcastle and Edinburgh before concluding the season in Belfast on 27th February.

In late September the Trocks were performing at Les Folies Bergère in Paris.  I reviewed the performance and also went backstage to talk with five of the Trocks and explore what it is like to be a part of this unique company.
