Sally Gross – The Pleasure of Stillness

Albert Maysles, Kristen Nutile, 2007, 60 min

Film Synopsis

SALLY GROSS - THE PLEASURE OF STILLNESS is an intimate portrait about the life and work of critically acclaimed dancer and choreographer Sally Gross. Called "the most poetic of minimalist modern-dance choreographers" by New York Times dance critic Jennifer Dunning, Sally Gross has been dancing for more than fifty years.
The film gives the audience an insight into the life and creative process of a true New York artist who has been involved in a number of groundbreaking art movements over the last 50 years, which still continue to influence artists today.
