Any Trocks fan will tell you—come for the side-splitting comedy, stay for the fantastic dancing! The technically stunning and shockingly elegant male ballerinos of Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo have been charming Berkeley audiences with their singular brand of ballet satire since their campus debut in 1976. A lot has happened in American gay and drag culture since then, but the Trocks have persevered and remained as relevant and pace-setting as ever. Dance aficionados revel in the company’s smart send-ups of iconic repertory, and ballet “newbies” are delighted by the high-camp drama executed with flair and finesse.
“Gentle comedy, slapstick farce and excellent dancing…this is lampooning at its most creative” (Bachtrack).
