Summary
Presents cellist Yo-Yo Ma in artistic collaborations with choreographer Mark Morris and filmmaker Atom Egoyan, each involving one of Bach's six unaccompanied Cello suites.
Falling down stairs: Cellist Yo-Yo Ma embarks on an intense year-long collaboration with choreographer Mark Morris, which culminates in a performance, conceived especially for film, of J.S. Bach's 3rd suite for unaccompanied cello as interpreted by Yo-Yo Ma and the 14-member Mark Morris Dance Group. The film follows Mark and Yo-Yo from city to city, documenting their collaborations with intimacy, humour and candor. We see the first meeting of Mark and Yo-Yo as they set down the rules of this most unusual creative experiment; we see Mark struggling to overcome a creative block as he builds new choreography; we see his dancers run through sections of the suite while Yo-Yo accompanies them on cello; we see Mark conduct Yo-Yo while the latter makes a recording of the suite for compact disc; and finally, we witness the pay-off as Yo-Yo and the dancers perform the suite exclusively for and with the camera--Adapted from the Mark Morris Dance Group web site.
Sarabande: "Yo-Yo Ma (playing himself) arrives in Toronto, amidst a certain amount of confusion, to perform in concert and teach a master class. In various time frames, parallel story lines develop involving a dying physician, the young female doctor taking over his practice, the old doctor's real estate agent, her boyfriend, Yo-Yo Ma, and his limosine driver. The characters come into contact with Bach's suite at various times and under different circumstances. All of them experience an emotional transformation, related to the depth of their relationship with the music and each other"--The Egoyan nucleus : web guide to Atom Egoyan.
