ABT documentary film

6 posts in this topic

Gillian Murphy just sent out a tweet about filming for an ABT documentary. As you can see in the picture, it's by Ric Burns. I don't remember hearing anything about this before. Does anybody know about it?

California, you had started a topic on this a few months ago, but not in the ABT forum. The doucmentary was mentioned in a prior ABT On Pointe newsletter. It will be shown on PBS in 2015, coinciding w. the company's 75th Anniversary.

Thanks for the reminder! At least we know filming is underway, thanks to Gillian! It's troubling that there is such a limited film record of ABT's outstanding dancers -- especially Murphy and Gomes -- while they are in their prime.

Amen to that. I'd add Herman Cornejo to that list of dancers whose dancing surely warrants a few permanent records of their work.

And then there is Veronika Part. And Stella Abrera. I hope they both dance prominently in the film.
