Bill T. Jones: A Good Man
Wednesday 1st May 2019
A Good Man follows acclaimed director/choreographer Bill T. Jones as he and his company create their most ambitious work – an original dance-theatre piece in honour of Abraham Lincoln’s Bicentennial.
Through two tumultuous years, we witness raw moments of frustration as Jones struggles to communicate his vision to his dancers and collaborators, as well as moments of great exhilaration when movement transcends the limitation of words. https://www.phoenix.org.uk/film/a-good-man-ldif/
