WINSTON-SALEM – Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance http://www.balletincinema.com/2011/12/19/joffrey/ 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.

This film appeals to arthouse documentary fans and Ballet in Cinema audiences.

The film features an appearance by Alex Ewing, Winston resident, recent former Chancellor UNCSA, and former Joffrey General Director.

Mr. Ewing will be present for the screening and will give a short pre-screening introduction to the film. He’ll also stick around after the screening to answer any questions and address any comments folks might have.
