Description

In this interview, Natch Taylor discusses the formation and creation of the all male dance company Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. He also discusses his background as a dancer and the popularity of the dance company in Japan as well as the many venues and cities around the world that the company has performed.

Biographical note:
Natch Taylor (1948-) was a dancer and one of the co-founders of Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo is an all-male drag ballet corps which parodies the conventions and clich├ęs of romantic and classical ballet. The dancers portray both male and female roles in a humorous style that combines parodies of ballet, posing and physical comedy with "straighter" pieces intended to show off the performers' technical skills. Much of the humor is in seeing male dancers en travesti; performing roles usually reserved to females, wearing tutus and dancing en pointe.
