Celebrate Pride Month with a special screening of Rebels on Pointe (2017), directed by Bobbi Jo Hart. Come early for a conversation and Q&A with featured dancers before the screening.

Q&A 8:00 p.m. followed by the film screening at dusk, approximately 9:00 p.m.

Exploring universal themes of identity, dreams, and family, Rebels on Pointe is the first-ever documentary film celebrating the world famous Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. The notorious all-male, drag ballet company was founded 45 years ago in New York City on the heels of the Stonewall riots, and has a passionate cult following around the world. The film juxtaposes intimate behind-the-scenes access, rich archives, and history, engaging character-driven stories, and dance performances shot in North America, Europe, and Japan. Rebels on Pointe is a creative blend of gender-bending artistic expression, diversity, passion, and purpose.

A story which ultimately proves that a ballerina is not only a woman dancing—but an act of revolution in a tutu.

Bring a blanket and come early to secure your spot.  

See Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo live at SummerStage in Central Park on Wednesday, June 19 at 8:00 p.m. A pre-show panel featuring members of the all-male troupe will be held at 6:00 p.m.
