Program consists of three interviews. In the first, Joffrey Ballet dancer Denise Jackson, upon her imminent retirement, looks back upon her performing career. She recounts her experiences of dancing the company's varied repertory, and compares the choreography of Frederick Ashton and Jiří Kylián. The second interview features Andres Bossard and Floriana Frassetto of the mime/masked dance troupe Mummenschanz. They discuss the mask as a means of self-revelation and describe their company's innovations in performing style and the use of changeable masks. In the third interview, Tony Award winner Bebe Neuwirth talks about performing on Broadway, particularly in the musicals Sweet Charity and A chorus line, and recalls the experience of working with choreographer/director Bob Fosse.
