REBELS ON POINTE

  • BROADWAY PERFORMANCE HALL (map)

Bobbi Jo Hart; 2017; Canada; 90 min. in English, Spanish and Italian with English subtitles

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo is an all-gay male ballet company founded over forty years ago.  This cinéma vérité  feature combines   archival   footage   and   conversations   with   the   artistic   director, critics, and family members for an affectionate look at “The Trocks.” Get to know them as we travel around the world and gain an inside look at their joyfully inspired performances, familial bonds, and intimate relationships. Throughout the years, from the difficulty of acquiring funding to the devastation of AIDS,  their playful and humorous yet very serious dance techniques have propelled them into the spotlight as the rebel ambassadors of ballet.
