Fascinated by Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, the all-male, drag ballet company founded over 40 years ago? We are too. So Ovations Offstage (O2) has collaborated with an array of community partners to create THREE different opportunities for you to get up close and personal with members of the company and their work.

 

Get a behind-the-scenes view of the company and its history via a film screening of Rebels on Pointe Sunday, March 3 at 7 pm at SPACE Gallery, sponsored by AARP.

 

Filmmaker Bobbi Jo Hart reveals the history of “The Trocks” as the company is commonly known, including its founding over 40 years ago on the heels of New York’s Stonewall riots.

 

Exploring universal themes of identity, dreams, family, loss and love, Rebels on Pointe is the first-ever feature documentary celebrating the world famous Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. 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.
