ARTS BREAKFAST

Arts Breakfast at the arts end of the world

Men In Pink Tights

There’s a ballet company on stage at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Adelaide; glamorous costumes, great music, wonderful choreography, and the dancers are on pointe- except that they’re all men! Les Ballets Elloelle is the company,  Men In Pink Tights is the show, and the artistic director and lead dancer is Victor Trevino.

Ewart Shaw speaks to Victor, mentioning that as dancing on pointe is tradionally a female dance style, it seems quite funny to have men doing it.
