Never Stand Still: Dancing at Jacob’s Pillow

  • Directed by Ron Honsa
  • United States, 2005, 74 mins., English

Founded in the 1930s by visionary dance pioneer Ted Shawn on a farm in the Berkshires, Jacob’s 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. Filmed at the iconic Dance Festival, the mix of performances, interviews—among them legendary dancers and choreographers Merce Cunningham, Paul Taylor, Suzanne Farrell, Mark Morris, Judith Jamison, and Bill Irwin—behind-the-scenes insights, and rare archival footage reveal the passion, discipline, and daring at play in the world of dance.
