2:00pm - 3:15pm
A team of young filmmakers worked with multidisciplinary artist and filmmaker Ella Cooper to investigate the transformative power of dance. Together, they created the L’Allegro Movement Project, a documentary that tells the story of how dancers and teachers from Mark Morris Dance Group’s ground-breaking Dance for PD® program worked with partners in Toronto to create a transformative exploration of L’Allegro that inspired artistic discovery while building bridges among local communities.
Join us as we screen L’Allegro Movement Project and interview community participants from New York and Toronto about what dancing L’Allegro means to them (the film will be available for screening all week).
The event will also feature the world premiere of The Mountains Project, which features more than 75 people living with Parkinson’s dancing together in a virtual adapted staging of a section of L’Allegro.
