'The Boys'

the world’s greatest shave

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

On Sunday 30th April The Boys will be performing at the second last (ever) Conundrum.
Because many of the men in The Boys have an abundance of facial hair we are going to participate in the world’s greatest shave. Basically this means people will sponsor us to shave our beards and/or heads to help raise money for The Leukaemia Foundation of Australia.

Full details and online donations here.

If you want to come along on the night it’s at:

Cecil Street Studio,
66 Cecil Street, Fitzroy
7pm start, $8 entry

Also performing will be:

Regulars: Five Square Metres and State of Flux

Fabulous guests:

The Boys
Lyndesay Dresdon

    The Boys

    Saturday, February 15th, 2003

    At the end of 2002 David and Jacob formed The Boys. The first performances were at Conundrum in 2003 followed by a show at Dancehouse and then a 6 night season as part of the Melbourne International Arts Festival. This season was produced by David and Jacob with the assistance of Ranters Theatre.

    The concept for The Boys was simple – get as many men to dance together as possible. It’s a rare thing to see large male ensembles in contemporary dance – in fact in any performance arena (apart from team sports). The Boys is an ongoing project and they have performed in a number of different settings.

    Members of The Boys:

    Josef Lehrer, Telford Scully, Colin Sneesby, Martin Hughes, Paul Roberts, Paul Dumais, Shaun McLeod, Ashley Macqueen, Tom Andrews, Andrew Grey, Michael Hurwood, Justin Holland, Andrew Morrish, Paul Romano, Ilan Abrahams, Richard Lawton, Christo Everingham, Philipe Defwa, David Corbet, Jacob Lehrer

    (and on the bench, Simon Ellis – yet to make an appearance)
