Notes and Editorial Reviews

Directed by Don Kent, Christian Dumas-Lvowski.

A major figure on the contemporary choreography scene, Billy T. Jones is also a remarkable dancer and a performer with an electrifying stage presence. Here, alone in a studio and filmed from a totally cinematic point of view, he speaks to us of violence, gentleness and emotion in three short pieces: Ionization to music by Edgar Varèse; Chaconne, from Bach's partita for solo Violin in D minor; and tea for two, the famous classic song. Bonuses on the The dancing man include interviews with the choreographer, master classes and dance excerpts.
