Storyline

Rebels on Pointe is the first-ever, cinéma vérité documentary film celebrating Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo -- the all male, drag ballet company founded over 40 years ago on the heels of New York's Stonewall riots. The company has performed in over 500 cities and 33 countries, and has a cult following around the world. The film juxtaposes exclusive, behind-the-scenes access and intimate, character-driven stories of its dancers, highlighted by amazing performances shot around the world. Rebels on Pointe ultimately celebrates our shared humanity through universal themes of identity, dreams, family, love, loss, determination and resilience... proving that a ballerina is not merely a woman dancing, but an act of revolution in a tutu.

A revealing and sweet documentary
25 August 2018 | by edb-5See all my reviews

I liked everything about the documentary except for one thing. There was a glaring and inexcusable omission. The co-founder and principal choreographer of the troupe, Peter Anastos, is not even mentioned.

Aside from that, this is a lovely portrait of a ground-breaking dance company. I must disagree with another reviewer that this is only a comic ballet company where tha dancers have to "pretend to be clumsy and inept." Anyone who has seen them knows that not every dance they perform is comic, and the skill of the dancers is on constant display. Their skill is acknowledged by the ABT principal dancer who is interviewed in the film.

Worth seeing.
