It’s a ballet double bill at the Silver Screen Drive-in featuring two very different films, one a recorded live dance performance, and the other a look at the revolutionary journey of an all-male ballet company.

'One With', Ballet Kelowna’s first dance film, premiered Feb. 13. 2021. “My father recently moved into a long-term care home. The onset of dementia was rapid and made worse by the pandemic lockdown and subsequent isolation. Although it is difficult for him to communicate, I know that he is thinking about and remembering things from his past. I know that there is an expansive inner world of thoughts, feelings, observations, and ideas that he is recollecting, processing, and trying to share with me when we spend time together. 'One With' looks at this inner space. It is about the people and memories that we hold onto and try to never forget. This piece also looks at the idea of companionship and support, something that is essential to the well-being of those living with dementia.” Simone Orlando, choreographer, Artistic Director and CEO of Ballet Kelowna. Using the music of 'Fantasia on a Theme' by Thomas Tallis ,Ballet Kelowna’s dancers McKeely Borger, Desiree Bortolussi, Valentin Chou, Kelsey Hanna, Seiji Suzuki, and Kurt Werner, express the themes of the piece beautifully while interpreting Simone Orlando’s choreography. Film Length: 18 minutes.

'Ballerina Boys' celebrates Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo where for 45 years some of the world’s most beautiful dancers, male ballerinas, have taken great risks to practice their dazzling version of ballet parody. A film full of beauty and fun, it seduces viewers into facing issues of gender, inclusion, and social justice. The film travels with “the Trocks” on a bus tour to the Carolinas, the epicenter of efforts to walk back LGBTQ rights. On that trip, the dancers reveal how, by way of wrenching personal histories, they found their serendipitous pathways to the Company. The story interweaves this tour, the backstories of three main characters, and the survival story of the Company itself.

Inspired by the Stonewall Riots of 1969, the Company was fueled by a spirit of defiance and creative exuberance. Their first performances took place in a run-down meeting hall on a plywood stage. Not content to be consigned to the fringe of the dance world, within a year they set out to tour the country. At a time when a man wearing women’s clothes violated the law in many states, the Trocks were forced to ask the question: where can we be safe? Much to their amazement, their blend of expert technique and joyful “homage” caught on. The film’s half-century historical arc culminates with the Trocks’ performance at Central Park’s Stonewall 50th Anniversary Concert, where they danced “Stars and Stripes Forever.” New York City cheered as fifteen drag queens in red, white, and blue tutus flaunted their stunning technique and exulted in a moment of unabashed patriotism. “Ballerina Boys” is both intimate and panoramic, both historical and urgently of this moment. Now the world can admire real-life heroes who actually do wear tights! A film by Chana Gazit and Martha Barylick - 90 minutes
