Carmen & Geoffrey Featuring Carmen de Lavallade and Geoffrey Holder With Gus Solomons, Jr., Dudley Williams, Judith Jamison, Jennifer Dunning, Alvin Ailey, and Josephine Baker. “What you see is more than an outstanding five-decade creative collaboration, it’s one of the dance world’s great love stories, too.” –Dance Magazine Carmen de Lavallade and Geoffrey Holder, two living legends in the world of American dance, are the subjects of this intimate and illuminating documentary. De Lavallade, trained by Lester Horton, achieved fame as a lead dancer of incomparable beauty and grace with Alvin Ailey’s American Dance Theater. Multi-talented Holder is not only a dancer and choreographer, but also a painter, costume designer, actor, and theater director (“The Wiz”). He and Carmen met in 1954, appearing together in House of Flowers directed by Herbert Ross, and married a year later. You will be thoroughly engaged by the story of this extraordinary “power” couple. Filmed on location in Trinidad, Paris, and New York, with many historical clips, including those of Josephine Baker. DVD 79 min., 2006 All regions
