Description

Join us for New View ~ Documentary Film & Live Ballet! Experience with sweeping views, mingling friends and artists, wine tasting by White Salmon Vineyards, benefit for fav scholarship fund, AC smaller indoor crowd so don't delay!!

Exploring universal themes of identity, dreams, family, loss and love, 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 over 40 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 amazing 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 rebellion in a tutu.

PLUS: Live performance by Trockadero dancer Josh Thake flying in from Montreal ~ known as:

Joshua-thake-female: EUGENIA REPELSKII The secrets of Mme Repelskii's beginnings lie shrouded behind the Kremlin wall. Eugenia has emerged as a ballerina nonpareil whose pungency is indisputable. She is known as the Odessa Chihuahua.
Joshua-thake-male: JACQUES D’ANIELS
was originally trained as an astronaut before entering the world of ballet. Strong but flexible, good natured but dedicated, sensible but not give to unbelievable flights of fantastic behavior, Mr. d’Aniels is an expert...
