Documentary on the genesis of A selection, a dance work created in collaboration by Pilobolus Dance Theatre and Maurice Sendak and Arthur Yorinks of the Night Kitchen Theater. Beginning with the first rehearsals for the work, the film explores the complex and occasionally troubled interaction between the dance company, known for its innovative collaborative approach to choreography, and Sendak, an eminent author and illustrator. Archival footage from Nazi Germany depicts the inspiration for the work, a dance of death evoking the evils of the Jewish Holocaust. The film follows A selection from its presentation as a work-in-progress at Purchase College's Performing Arts Center to its world premiere at the American Dance Festival in Durham, N.C., and its New York premiere at the Joyce Theater. A sequence of performance excerpts from the work conclude the film

Still Moving : Pilobolus at Forty( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1970s, at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, USA, four male athletes joined a dance class. Their collaborative work led to the creation of Pilobolus and the transformation of modern dance. Pilobolus eschewed the bright lights of Manhattan and settled in rural Connecticut. On the eve of its fortieth anniversary, internationally-renowned, Pilobolus returns to New Hampshire for a Dartmouth-commissioned premiere of a collaboration with cartoonist Art Spiegelman. Still Moving: Pilobolus at Forty focuses on the company's lifecycle--including a founder's death--its evolution, transformation, and regeneration. At their studio, on the road, in community workshops, and on stage, the arts organism Pilobolus thrives." -- Film website
