FORA.tv and MacNeil/Lehrer Productions team up for “Masters of Modern Dance” series
San Francisco–based website FORA.tv, a major player in the videos-of-supersmart-people-saying-interesting-things-on-a-broad-range-of-topics market, has packaged five interviews between PBS NewsHour senior correspondent Jeffrey Brown and men whose names you’ll recognize even if you don’t give one whit about dance: Mikhail Baryshnikov, Mark Morris, Trey McIntyre, Paul Taylor and Bill T. Jones. (You can , whose company visits Chicago in a month, in TOC’s , on newsstands now).
The series, called “Masters of Modern Dance,” clocks in at just over three hours total, with each episode lasting about 40 minutes. There’s some great, fly-on-the-wall footage of rehearsals as well.
Poke around FORA.tv’s video-on-demand—which is free, viewable for a fee, or accessible via membership options—and you’ll find more dance folk, including former New York City Ballet star Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux, speaking about inspiration and passion at the Chautauqua Institution.
For TOC readers (that’s you!), the “Masters of Modern Dance Series” is $15 for 60 days of unlimited viewing (25% off the regular price of $19.95). The Bill T. Jones segment is $3.71 for 30 days of unlimited viewing (25% less than the regular price of $4.95). Details on how to apply the discount, and a preview of the Jones episode, are after the jump.
