Movie Info

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. -- (C) Official Site

This film has the everyday vibe of a bunch of friends putting together a summer camp video. Gosh, the substance of Jacob's Pillow should be a little less sleepy.

Too often, Honsa will simply let his talking heads ramble on without focus or foundation...

It's all pretty loose and formless, but there's enough discipline on display to thrill lovers of movement, whether amateur or advanced.

The historical footage of Jacob's Pillow is fascinating, and if you've ever slogged through an hours-long tech rehearsal, look no further for your comrades-in-arms.

Modern dance appreciated as a sacred endeavor enabling one to fly above the fray, if not literally, vicariously, at the very least.
