The documentary by Linda Atkinson and Nick Doob  (2005) traces the individual careers and love story of Carmen de Lavallade and  husband, Geoffrey Holder, two extraordinary artists and national treasures, who have played a vital role in shaping the legacy of modern dance in America. The film features interviews and performance footage of friends and colleagues, including Judith Jamison, Gus Solomons, Jr., Dudley Williams, Ulysses Dove, and Alvin Ailey.   

Carmen de Lavallade:

first appeared in New York City with the Lester Horton Dance Theater and subsequently on Broadway with Alvin Ailey in House of Flowers, where she met Geoffrey Holder. She appeared in the films Carmen Jones, Odds Against Tomorrow, Big Daddy, and Lone Star. Horton, Ailey, and others—Glen Tetley, Agnes de Mille, and her husband, Mr. Holder—created ballets especially for her. She was a principal dancer with the Metropolitan Opera, and a guest artist of American Ballet Theatre and New York City Center Opera. At Yale, Ms. de Lavallade taught movement for actors and became a member of the Yale Repertory Company and the American Repertory Theater at Harvard. She has choreographed for Dance Theatre of Harlem, Philadanco, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and the Metropolitan Opera. Ms. de Lavallade received a Dance Magazine Award, an honorary doctorate from The Juilliard School, a Duke Ellington Fellowship Award, and a Dance/USA Award. She is a founding member of Paradigm, a repertory concert company. She is currently on Broadway in A Streetcar Named Desire.

Geoffrey Holder:

was born in Trinidad and educated at Queens Royal College. He toured the West Indies and Puerto Rico as a dancer with his brother’s troupe, the Holder Dance Company, before making his New York stage debut in the 1954 Broadway musical House of Flowers, where he met Carmen de Lavallade. From 1955 through 1956, Mr. Holder was a principal dancer with the Metropolitan Opera Ballet. In 1957 he played the role of Lucky in a revival of Waiting for Godot. His subsequent stage work has earned him numerous awards, including two Tonys—one for direction, the other for costume design—for 1974's The Wiz. His film roles included Baron Samedi in the 1973 Bond thriller Live and Let Die (1973) and  Punjab in Annie (1981). As a choreographer he has created dance pieces for many companies, including the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Outside of his theatrical and film accomplishments, Mr. Holder is the author of several books and is an accomplished painter, his works having been showcased in major international exhibitions. He is a true renaissance man with no equal.

Baryshnikov Arts Center (BAC)

is the realization of a long-held vision by artistic director Mikhail Baryshnikov,
who sought to build an arts center in Manhattan that would serve as a gathering place for artists from all disciplines. BAC’s opening in 2005 heralded the launch of this mission, establishing a thriving creative laboratory and performance space for artists from around the world. BAC’s activities encompass a robust residency program augmented by a range of professional services, including commissions of new work, as well as the presentation of performances by artists at varying stages of their careers. In tandem with its commitment to supporting artists,
BAC is dedicated to building audiences for the arts by presenting contemporary, innovative work at affordable ticket prices.
