The Trocks were in Houston this past weekend...I've been dying to see them forever but didn't go. I'll have plenty of chances next year, though. I wonder why they haven't been reviewed in the Chronicle yet.

Dunno, Old-Fashioned, but my hunch is that criticss here are waiting out of courtesy to Cal Performances, who're presenting them AGAIN in the Bay Area later this season. the Trocks did have a one-off in San Rafael a week or 2 ago.

Don't miss them. there are certain values in their dancing that are REAL ballet values but you don't see them anywhere else, they're so old-fashioned. And besides, the more you love ballet, and the more you know about it, the funnier they are.

Paul, I am intrigued.

I was going to watch them someday (I love comedy of all sorts) but now I'm very interested. And what are the real ballet values you are talking about?

May I recommend two recent articles by Mary Cargill and Leigh Witchel in the Dance View Times about some performances by the Trocks ?

and also an older article by Leigh on his web site:
