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
