Summary
"Bill T. Jones is one of the most powerful forces in the Modern Dance World. His influences include Alvin Ailey, Martha Graham and José Limon, but his style is fresh and unique, creating contemporary classics known for their energy, innovative partnering and technical virtuosity. Built around rehearsal and performance of his epic masterpiece, "Last Supper at Uncle Tom's Cabin/The Promised Land", this film guides us through the life, work and creative process of Bill T. Jones and his extraordinary company. The choreographer himself is our charismatic host, offering penetrating insight into his style, and the piece confronts some of the most sensitive and provocative issues of our time: Race, Faith, Gender and Sexuality."--Container
