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 in Never Stand Still. Filmed at the iconic Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, this thrilling documentary features amazing performances by world-renowned dancers interwoven 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.
Like Wim Wenders's Pina, Never Stand Still immerses us in the lives of extraordinary artists and the power of dance.
"An exhilarating documentary featuring every kind of dance form imaginable in rapid, kinesthetically gripping visuals." - San Francisco Examiner
