Les Ballet Trockadero de Monte Carlo have the honour of being the world’s foremost all-male comic ballet company. Combining sophisticated, technically complicated and brilliant dancing with perfectly-executed slapstick and self-deprecating humour, they make ballet accessible and entertaining for anyone and everyone. This isn’t the only remarkable thing about them: the ballet was set up over 40 years ago on the heels of New York’s Stonewall riots and has since become an international phenomenon, smashing preconceptions around the world. Bobbi Jo Hart’s one-of-a-kind documentary takes us behind the scenes of ‘the Trocks’, as they’re affectionately known, showing us the mad creativity of their international touring and painting fascinating portraits of some of the troupe’s dancers. Everyone seeks love, acceptance and identity, and these men have found it in making the ballet funny. Natalia Bolek
