Yvonne Rainer - Moving and Being Moved
Yvonne Rainer is known for her challengingly experimental—and often minimalist—work as a dancer, choreographer, and filmmaker, which spearheaded the rise of postmodern dance. This selection of texts and images by Rainer and various authors, edited by Rainer herself, offers a retrospective portrait of her work, focusing on some of her most notable performances and projects from both the late 1960s (‘Trio A’, ‘The Mind Is a Muscle’) and since her return to dance with the White Oak Dance Project in 2000. An essay by Rainer frames her career and experiences from the perspective of an aging dancer who is aware of her physical limitations.
Includes a conversation between Rainer and dancer Trisha Brown and essays by Soyoung Yoon, Douglas Crimp, and Maureen N. McLane.
