Rebels on Pointe

presented by Portland Ovations

Dir. Bobbi Jo Hart | 90 min | 2017

Drag meets dance when “the Trocks” take the stage. For over 40 years, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo have turned the dance world on its head with their (mostly) faithful renditions of classical ballet repertoire. Exploring universal themes of identity, dreams, family, loss and love, Rebels on Pointe is the first-ever feature documentary celebrating the world famous Trocks.

Portland Ovations is welcoming the Trocks to Portland on March 29th, join us at SPACE as we partner with Ovations present the history and story of the group through this film before the ballet. 

The all male, comic ballet company was founded over 40 years ago on the heels of New York's Stonewall riots and and has a diverse cult following around the world. The film juxtaposes behind-the-scenes access, rich archives and history, intimate character-driven stories, and amazing dance performances shot in North America, Europe and Japan. Rebels on Pointe is a creative blend of gender, diversity, passion and purpose. A story which ultimately proves that a ballerina is not only a woman dancing -- but an act of rebellion in a tutu.
