WATCH: The Dynamics of a Bromance (Expressed Through Contemporary Dance)

Barely Methodical Troupe

The physicality, the trust, and the homoerotic undertones. 

It was a way to comfortably define the increased comfortableness straight men had with one another that began in the new millennium and has since been added to the dictionary and cited ad nauseum: "bromance." But now there's a physical description for it in the form of contemporary dance.

"It's based on them being friends, exploring intimacy of physical interaction between guys; of their 'bromance,'" director Bertil Nilsson told NOWNESS of the dancers in the video. The three of them -- Beren D'Amico, Charlie Wheeller, and Louis Giftn -- make up the experimental acrobatic company, Barley Methodical Troupe.

The three of them trained independently before forming the group. They won the Total Theatre Award at Edinburgh 2014 for their live performance of "Bromance," and they will be opening the London International Mime Festival 2015 with the routine.
