Capitol Theatre Nelson: Rebels on Pointe (Dance Documentary Screening) – Friday, January 19 at 7pm

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.
