Emerging Pictures, in partnership with Hybrid Cinema, presents the documentary Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance.
Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance takes a look at the Joffrey Ballet, the groundbreaking cultural treasure known as the first truly American dance company. Narrated by Tony® and Emmy® Award winner Mandy Patinkin and directed by Bob Hercules (Bill T. Jones: A Good Man), the film documents how the Joffrey revolutionized American ballet by daringly combining modern dance with traditional ballet technique, combining art with social statement and setting ballets to pop and rock music scores. The film features rare excerpts from many seminal Joffrey works including Astarte, Trinity and Billboards.
The film features an appearance by Alex Ewing, a Winston-Salem resident, recent former Chancellor of UNCSA, and former Joffrey General Director. Mr. Ewing will give a short pre-screening introduction to the film, and be present afterwards for questions and comments.
