About the Event

Following our “Healing with Music” event exploring the intersection of Music, Dance, & Parkinson’s the day prior, learn more about the Mark Morris Dance Group’s Dance for PD® program through this award-winning documentary that follows individuals with Parkinson’s as they prepare to stage a first-ever dance performance. Through determination, adversity, and contending with doubt, “Capturing Grace” highlights the transformative power of art and the strength of the human spirit.

A post-screening talkback with director and Dance for PD® participant Dave Iverson will conclude the event.

A Note from Director Dave Iverson:

“Capturing Grace is a story about two realms. One is occupied by some of the most acclaimed modern dancers in the world. The other is inhabited by a group of people with Parkinson’s disease. This film is about what happens when those worlds intersect. For me, it’s also a personal story. I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s eight years ago, the third member of my family to receive that news. A few years after my diagnosis, my colleagues at Kikim Media and I made a film about Parkinson’s for the PBS Frontline series called My Father, My Brother and Me . It was during that production that I first learned about the Mark Morris Dance Group’s unique partnership with people with Parkinson’s from the Brooklyn Parkinson Group. Later, I did a short profile of the program for the PBS NewsHour, but I’ve always felt there was a deeper story to be told. This is a film about rediscovery, the rediscovery of a lighter step and the sweetness of motion.  And it’s a story about a remarkable community of dancers–some professional, some not–but all coming together to move in space…and in doing so, rediscovering grace.  And it is in that rediscovery that each becomes whole.”
