Dancing at Jacob's Pillow: Never Stand Still

Narrated by acclaimed choreographer Bill T. Jones, the story of Jacob's Pillow as an international dance center is interwoven throughout this performance documentary with never before seen footage and images from the Pillow's rare and extensive archives, including the pioneering Ted Shawn, who purchased Jacob's Pillow in 1931. Interspersed with the performances are intimate interviews with legendary dance artists including Judith Jamison, Paul Taylor, Mark Morris, Suzanne Farrell and Frederic Franklin, as well as one of the last interviews with the iconic Merce Cunningham.
