It seems like two separate realms. One is occupied by acclaimed dancers from Brooklyn’s legendary Mark Morris Dance Group, the other by people with Parkinson’s disease. Capturing Grace is about what happens when those two worlds intersect. Filmed over the course of a year, this remarkable documentary reveals the hopes, fears, and triumphs of this newly forged community as they work together to create a unique performance.
