Director Todd Phillips “Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen.

A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him.

Roberto Villanueva founded BalaSole Dance Company nine years ago to combat the discrimination against 'atypical bodies' that one encounters in dance. Take Villanueva himself: a dazzling soloist with sparkling technique and facility that puts him in Sylvie Guillem's league, at 5 foot 2 inches, his atypical height all but barred him from working with major companies. His response to that exclusion was to create BalaSole, a showcase for talented, atypical dancers.

Whether it is a look at the inner workings of a complicated machine or a sneak peek a?oebehind the scenesa?? of the latest summer blockbuster, people have been fascinated with understanding what it takes to a?oemake the sausagea?? for years.
