About this item
Co-founded in 1956 by visionary teacher Robert Joffrey and dancer Gerald Arpino, The Joffrey Ballet began as a DIY company of six dancers touring the United States in a borrowed station wagon but quickly grew into one of the world's most exciting and prominent ballet companies. Aggressive touring took the Company from school auditoriums across America's Heartland, to the White House at Jacqueline Kennedy's invitation, and on to Russia for a month-long tour during the height of the Cold War, and beyond. "Joffrey: Mavericks Of American Dance" weaves a wealth of rare archival footage and photographs along with interviews featuring former and current Joffrey star dancers, showing the full history of the Company from its founding to the present. Narrated by Tony(R) and Emmy(R) Award winner Mandy Patinkin and directed by Bob Hercules ("Bill T. Jones: A Good Man"), the film features rare excerpts from many seminal Joffrey works including "Astarte", "Trinity and Billboards", as well as breakthrough collaborations with choreographers Twyla Tharp ("Deuce Coupe"), Kurt Jooss ("The Green Table") and Leonide Massine ("Parade").
