Film: Rebels On Pointe
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 troupe.
Portland Ovations is welcoming The Trocks on March 29th. Come learn the history of this amazing company through the documentary Rebels on Pointe on March 3rd.
The all-male comic ballet company was founded over 40 years ago on the heels of New York’s Stonewall riots and has a diverse cult following around the world. The film features behind-the-scenes footage, rich archives and history, intimate character-driven stories, and amazing dance performances shot in North America, Europe, and Japan.
