Legendary dancers and choreographers Merce Cunningham, Paul Taylor, Suzanne Farrell, Mark Morris, Judith Jamison and Bill Irwin appear alongside new innovators to reveal the passion, discipline, and daring of the world of dance. Filmed at the iconic Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, this documentary features amazing performances by world-renowned dancers woven with intimate interviews, behind-the-scenes insights, and rare archival footage. Founded in the 1930s by visionary dance pioneer Ted Shawn on a farm in the Berkshires, today the Pillow is an idyllic mecca for artists and audiences from around the world, a place where dance in all its forms — from ballet to jazz to contemporary — is studied, created, performed, and celebrated. Narrated by Bill T. Jones. (2012, 74 min, digital)
