Young Men is a new full-length production from BalletBoyz, winners of the National Dance Awards Best Independent Dance Company 2013.

In an intensely moving portrayal of love, friendship, loss and survival, Young Men explores the theme of war and the bonds that develop between the men consumed by it. Drawing inspiration from images of conflict through the ages, the production is a compelling hybrid of dance, theatre and screen performance from the ever-inventive BalletBoyz and their all male dance company the TALENT.

Opening Sadler’s Wells 2015 programme, Young Men is choreographed by rising star Iván Pérez (Nederlands Dans Theater I and II, Ballet Moscow, and the National Ballet of Cuba) and features a newly-commissioned original score from the cult singer songwriter Keaton Henson (albums Dear… and Birthdays).

Featuring the award-winning dancers of the TALENT and live music, Young Men is a co-production with Sadler’s Wells Theatre and 14-18 NOW, WW1 Centenary Art Commissions

David Cannon9th October

Brilliant Choreography, very emotive..don't go if you are somewhat depressed as it is a rather 'dark' performance bringing home the tragedy and loss of the Great War.

Kevin Grose8th October

The ballet presents an emotional, physical response to the topic of war and death. The dynamism of BalletBoyz's Young Men made this response both shocking and poignant. I was moved. The production is powerful but loses a bit its energy under the heavy costuming.
