BalletBoyz at the Roundhouse

A behind-the-scenes look at the staging of BalletBoyz's award-winning show Serpent/Fallen at London's Roundhouse in July 2014, with live music from the BBC Concert Orchestra.

BalletBoyz (winners of 2013 National Dance Award for Best Independent Company) is a ten-strong, all male, world class modern dance troupe currently touring sell-out shows throughout the UK and internationally.

July 2014 saw their tour culminate in a special one-off performance at London's iconic Roundhouse featuring, for the first time, live music. Michael Nunn and William Trevitt (creators of award-winning programmes BalletBoyz/Strictly Bolshoi/BalletBoyz: The Rite of Spring) present backstage interviews with the dancers during the show, studio documentary footage of the creation, and brief insights into the evening's many collaborators.

The performance includes Liam Scarlett's work Serpent with Max Richter's music, and Russell Maliphant's award-winning work Fallen with music by Armand Amar, with both pieces performed to live music played by the BBC Concert Orchestra.
