Produced and Directed by Douglas Rosenberg
Choreography by Sally Gross
Dancing by Sally Gross and students
An original member of the famed Judson Church Group, Sally Gross has been making spare, elegant dances that often interact with live music and the visual arts for over 50 years. This documentary follows Ms. Gross as she works with a group of students to create a site-specific project within an exhibition by the acclaimed artist Leo Villareal.
The film includes intimate interactions between Ms. Gross and her students as well as recollections of her life in dance. Through the quietude of Ms. Gross, whose work is both minimalist and humanist, the film offers us a glimpse at the value of teaching, mentoring and being present within the creative process.
