Introduction: Anna Halprin Film

Hi Feldenkrais Students,
Following is a description of a documentary that is opening at the Roxie, on Friday, April 2, that I highly recommend for all to see.  Anna Halprin is a greatbreathmadevisibleannahalprin1 teacher of dance and how to heal and grow through artistic expression.   When I met Anna a few years back I was in awe of her on many levels but mostly I was touched by the love she exuded for others and for the planet we live on.  I hope to see you there!

BREATH MADE VISIBLE is the first feature length film about the life and career of Anna Halprin, the American dance pioneer who has helped redefine our notion of modern art with her belief in dance’s power to to teach, heal, and transform at all ages of life.

This cinematic portrait blends recent interviews with counterparts such as the late Merce Cunningham, archival footage including her establishment of the first multiracial dance company in the U.S, and excerpts of current performances such as “Parades and Changes” at the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris, to weave a stunning, inspiring account of one of the most important cultural icons in modern dance.
