In 2010, former Royal Ballet (Covent Garden) dancers Michael Nunn, OBE and William Trevitt, OBE held a series of open auditions with the idea of forming an all-male company. The artists they selected brought a range of dance backgrounds to the studio. Nunn and Trevitt’s previous outreach work had taught them that raw talent, set in the right direction, can often trump formal training so they selected dances on this premise. The result is an energetic company of ten dancers who will perform two stunning works showcasing their strength and sensitivity in the contemporary ballet genre. A “viscerally thrilling” (The Telegraph) “adrenaline rush” (The Times), The Talent sold out every venue on its first tour of the UK.
A cutting edge and critically acclaimed contemporary dance company based in London, UK. Renowned for their exciting and innovative blend of original film work and live performance, directors Michael Nunn & Wiliam Trevitt have placed this company at the forefront of the international contemporary dance and multimedia arts scenes.
