Never Stand Still' explores why dance matters as it transports the viewer into a world of non-stop dance, the daring artists who dedicate their lives to it, and the extraordinary place where it all happens. Directed by Ron Honsa, narrated by Tony Award winner Bill T. Jones, and filmed on location at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Never Stand Still features thrilling performances, revelatory conversations with world renowned choreographers and dancers, backstage access, and rare archival footage while chronicling the remarkable story of how an abandoned farm, in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, evolved into a nexus for dance throughout the world, today considered "the dance center of the nation"(The New York Times). Intimate interviews with legendary dance artists include Judith Jamison, Paul Taylor, Mark Morris, Suzanne Farrell, and Frederic Franklin, as well as one of the last interviews with the iconic Merce Cunningham. Broadway stars Bill Irwin and Rasta Thomas share their personal stories and ideas about art alongside international artists Shantala Shivalingappa, Gideon Obarzanek, Jomar Mesquita and Nikolaj Hübbe. Above all, the artists share with us their passion for the most ephemeral, physically demanding, and challenging art form, dance. Judith Jamison explains, "You have to touch the human spirit, don't you? What's the point otherwise? And as Mark Morris aptly puts it, "I like to say that my work --- it's not for everyone, it's for anyone." Never Stand Still is an inspiring film that will appeal to anyone.
