If you have a bit of time I highly recommend this PBS American Masters Documentary highlighting artist/choreographer Bill T Jones through his process in the development of work of art based on Abraham Lincoln. It is so worth it.

Bill T. Jones, the recipient of a prestigious MacArthur “genius” grant and winner of two Tony Awards, has been named “an irreplaceable treasure” by the The Dance Heritage Coalition. Above all, he is a socially conscious choreographer who never shies away from controversy — tackling thorny subjects such as race and politics with elegance and intelligence, artistry and originality.
