Last night, I attended a viewing of Dave Iverson’s touching film Capturing Grace. The documentary chronicles the lives of a group of fellow Parkinsonians (Brooklyn Parkinson Group) and their transition into becoming dancers through the instruction of David Leventhal and the Mark Morris Dance Group. The film captures the indomitable spirit and drive of the group’s members and the rock solid bonds that unite them through the power of dance. The story leads from classes and rehearsals to the moving public performance that the group openly shares what they have learned and accomplished.
I was grateful to actually meet Mark Morris and David Leventhal and thank them for their contribution to the Parkinson’s world.
If you haven’t seen Capturing Grace or you want more information on dance and Parkinson’s, the Dance for PD model is one to strongly consider!
By the way, for you film directors and Hollywood hopefuls, don’t forget about the World Parkinson Congress’ video competition, now open for entry!
If you are an author with a book consider sharing it at the Book Nook event at the World Parkinson Congress in Portland! For more information on both of these exciting mediums, click here for more information about the 4th World Parkinson Congress.
I accompanied Karl to the viewing last night and the documentary had me in tears. It’s so moving, so compassionate, and so inspirational! It was also great to see a few of our PD friends including Leonore and Cyndy 🙂
