NuArts Productions presents Danseur, sharing the struggles of men in pursuit of their ballet dreams. Sexism is built into the fabric of classical ballet, an art form that has idolized women in pointe shoes and tutus while relegating men to the role of partners. Director Scott Gormley explores the difficult subjects of bullying and homophobia that those men face while illustrating the athleticism as well as vitality of ballet, through performance, creation, preservation and education. Join Alberta Ballet after the screening for a discussion about what it’s like to be a male dancer in Alberta.
