Hybrid Cinema presents the New York theatrical premiere of Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance on Friday, April 27 at New York’s Cinema Village. The 90-minute documentary--directed by Bob Hercules (Bill T. Jones: A Good Man) and narrated by Mandy Patinkin--traces how Robert Joffrey and Gerald Arpino reimagined and redefined ballet for new audiences and engaged contemporary dance choreographers such as Twyla Tharp and Laura Dean.
