WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Bentfootes tells the irreverent yet touching story of downtown choreographer Susan Bentfoote and her extraordinary family, who for 200 years have used dance as a powerful creative force in their lives. This imaginative history weaves live "recreations" of obscure Bentfoote dances with original music and images from family memorabilia, into a memorial/documentary performance exploring the social, political, and artistic aesthetic of our country from post-revolutionary times to the present. In projected video sequences, additional performers playing the roles of historians, Bentfoote family members and friends keep the Bentfoote flame of dance burning bright in this humorous and poignant tribute to the lives of unsung American artists.
