Rebels on Pointe: Free Frameline Encore Screening
This free encore screening of Rebels on Pointe, a Frameline41 audience favorite, takes place at the Landmark Theatres Piedmont in Oakland. Amidst the tutus and toe shoes, director Bobbi Jo Hart's warm and winning documentary peeks behind the scenes of New York's world famous all-male Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. Birthed more than 40 years ago in the Stonewall era, the Trocks, as they are affectionately known, serve as cultural ambassadors of humor, understanding, inclusion and, yes, ballet -- opening up the widely intimidating form to new audiences the world over through a canny overlay of gay sensibility and passionate knowledge of the art. The film follows the Trocks through their demanding touring season, capturing some exquisite onstage routines while focusing on the personal and familial lives of several of the dancers, including some company couples.
