REBELS ON POINTE Official Trailer from Icarus Films on Vimeo.

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 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 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.

"Laugh out loud funny! An inclusive doc portrait ... The dancers of REBELS ON POINTE are good company for any audience."—POV Magazine

"Hart's engaging documentary brings out the humour in the Trocks, an essential part of the troupe's ethos. And she does that while balancing it with the seriousness that comes with ballet."—Inside Out
