Carmen and Geoffrey

Carmen and Geoffrey 80 mins


This beautiful feature documentary is about the work of two exceptional artists, Carmen de Lavallade and Geoffrey Holder, who stepped forward in the 1950’s to play a vital part in the newly energized world of American modern dance. It is also about a  fifty-four year long love affair and the creative partnership that sustained their accomplishments.

The film was shot in New York, Texas, Trinidad and Paris and contains rare dance footage featuring them from the 50’s and 60’s, both solo and together. It also includes their work with Ailey, Ross, Horton, Joe Layton, Duke Ellington and Josephine Baker in Paris. There are scenes of their contemporary work, including Carmen’s on-going partnership with Gus Solomons jr and Dudley Williams and both Carmen’s and Geoffrey’s current choreography.
