Breath Made Visible Movie Screening
Dates: 07/14/2015, Times: 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

imagesIn celebration of Anna Halprin’s 95th year, Bobbi Lucas, Michigan’s only certified Halprin practitioner, will host a viewing of Breath Made Visible. The award-winning documentary details the life and performances of Anna Halprin, the American dance pioneer who helped redefine our notion of modern art with her belief in dance’s power to teach, heal, and transform at all stages of life. The 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, to weave a stunning and inspiring account of one of the most important cultural icons in modern dance. Tuesday, July 14, 7-8:30 pm. Admission is free. Please let us know you are coming.

“Packed with illuminating interviews and lyrical movement, “Breath Made Visible” portrays a woman with angels in her feet and innovation in her blood. Long may she rock.” ~ New York Times
