THE 40-YEAR HISTORY OF THE TROCKS
The all-male dance troupe Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (known as The Trocks, for short) have braved the bruises and blisters of pointe shoes for more than 40 years. Dancing on their toes since 1974, The Trocks perform playful, entertaining parodies of classical ballet en travesti, a theatrical term for dressing as the opposite sex.
“We’re a male comedy ballet, so we do classical ballet, but drag is part of the schtick, or the joke. It is drag, but foremost we are a ballet company, and then a ballet company that performs in drag,” dancer Duane Gosa tells The Creators Project. READ MORE AT THE CREATORS PROJECT
