Exploring universal themes of identity, dreams and family, this film 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.

Very entertaining.

Edmonton is part of the video!

The Trocks were here a few years ago and they were fabulous. I hope they return!

I really enjoyed this Documentary! I was not sure what to expect at first, but was pleasantly surprised! The proficiency and comedy of this group is extraordinary! Delightful! I look forward to seeing them on stage live!
Make sure to see the Extras Section! The Interviews, etc are revealing and helpful! The Group accepts any body shape or size Ballet Dancers! It is an only-male group! It has an International, ethnically-mixed group, that constantly changes! An Autistic dancer is among them!
They travel around the World, performing to the sold-out audiences!

The International Traditional Ballet groups in our Societies accept only certain shapes and sizes! Not too tall, not too short, lithe, slim.. The standards these traditiona groups have are too elite and too restrictive!
I would welcome to see the different-body- types of Dancers! Their proficiency and talent are more important than how perfect their bodies are! A body perfection is a ludicrous standard to have, and greatly contributes to the body-image and eating disorders!
Also, a variety of bodies makes the dances, performances more interesting!
Using humour and comedy is a definite, welcome novelty that the public will never tire of! This group is beloved in Japan, a traditional society!
Bravo to this Trockadero Troup for defying tradition, convention and succeeding!
