[The Trocks] prove how parody and virtuosic technique work in glittering tandem.

Dance
Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo

Jacques D'Aniels. Nadia Doumiafeyva. Nina Enimenimynimova. These legendary (faux!) stars of the ballet—along with their full company of "danseurs extraordinaires"—return to Berkeley for more savagely funny satire married with seriously stunning ballet. Statuesque, glamorous male dancers in the iconic, if fictional, roles of prima ballerinas, the Trocks made their Berkeley debut in 1976 and in the intervening decades have helped bring gay culture and drag arts to the American mainstream. Beloved by ballet aficionados, their "comedy masterclass in style" (The Financial Times, London) is also sure to seduce the uninitiated—even those who don't know a plié from a fouetté.
