|Carmen de Lavallade and Geoffrey Holder, two living legends in the world of American dance, are the subjects of this intimate and revealing documentary. |
Carmen was the first to achieve notoriety in the early 1950s, as a lead dancer of incomparable beauty and grace with the Lester Horton Dance Theater and Alvin Ailey's American Dance Theater. Geoffrey, large in life and an elemental force on stage who would find fame not only as a dancer but also as an actor ("Live and Let Die"), soda spokesman ("the Un-Colaaaaa...") and theater director ("The Wiz"), met Carmen during a production of Truman Capote's "House of Flowers" in 1954, and proposed to her on sight. They married a year later and have been together ever since.
Filmed over a period of three years in New York, Texas, Trinidad and Paris, Carmen & Geoffrey features candid interviews and riveting archival dance footage. Performances of their work with Alvin Ailey, Herbert Ross, Lester Horton, Joe Layton, Duke Ellington and Josephine Baker, as well as their choreography work and Holder's stunning achievements in painting and costume design demonstrate the virtually uninterrupted creativity of these icons of dance.
