Jock Soto to attend Toronto screening of a film about his life

Red Sky, Canada's leading company of contemporary world Indigenous performance in dance, theatre and music, is sponsoring a screening of a film about former New York City Ballet dancer Jock Soto. 

Jock Soto will be in attendance.

Water Flowing Together is a compelling, intimate portrait of Jock Soto.
Of Navajo heritage, Soto was just 16 when George Balanchine selected him to join the New York City Ballet where he eventually became the most choreographed dancer in the company's history. Soto danced featured roles that were often created for him by world-class choreographers such as Peter Martins, Jerome Robbins, Christopher Wheeldon, and Lynne Taylor-Corbett.

While Jock Soto is an artist who found his medium of expression in dance, the film explores more than Soto's career—it is as much about the complexities of the man, about heritage, family, identity and transition.



WHEN:
  Friday April 5, 2013 at 5:00 pm
WHERE:

Camera Lounge
(1028 Queen St West - at Ossington), Toronto.

COST: $20 at the door only


The entire film is 77 minutes in length
