Arthur & Aileen
This short documentary takes place in a tiny New York apartment which can barely contain the combined energy of dancer Arthur Aviles and his mentor, Aileen Passloff. Arthur is a BESSIE & Brio award-winner who danced for many years with Bill T. Jones /Arnie Zane Dance Company, and is currently director of BAAD! Aileen is an octogenarian teacher and choreographer who was a dance pioneer at the Judson Church with James Waring and others. Their candid conversations touch on process, dance history and what matters in dancing.
