Yo-Yo Ma: Inspired by Bach - Falling Down Stairs

Falling Down Stairs follows an intense year-long collaboration between Yo-Yo Ma and choreographer Mark Morris, which culminates in a spectacular performance, conceived especially for film, of J. S. Bach's 'Suite No. 3 for Unaccompanied Cello' as interpreted by Yo-Yo Ma and the 14-member Mark Morris Dance Group.

The film shows the intimacy, soul-searching and humor involved in the creative process, as Yo-Yo and Mark struggle to create a completely new work that can live up to the title 'Inspired by Bach.'
