RASTA THOMAS' ROCK THE BALLET OPENS TONIGHT IN NYC

Rasta Thomas’ new Bad Boys of Dance show, “Rock the Ballet,” opens tonight at the Joyce Theater. I’ll be there later in the week. Here’s what I wrote last time I saw Bad Boys; below is a video of some footage of the current show, in Barcelona, interspersed with audience interviews (in Spanish).

And here’s one from the group’s performance on a Spanish TV show:

It looks like they’re including women this time (at least one, at least one human :) ). I can never tell if he’s being ironic or not with the choreography… In any event, the reason to see this show is the man himself, Rasta Thomas, brilliant brilliant dancer.

  1. Oh. Thank you for posting this.

    THIS is what has to happen to ballet (and other classical forms of art) — ironic or not. Ballet was done to the music of its time; it cannot stay stuck if it is to stay relevant.

    Excellent.
