YVONNE RAINER. SPACE, BODY, LANGUAGE
Museum Ludwig in cooperation with Kunsthaus Bregenz and the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles proudly presents the first European retrospective of the trailblazing choreographer and film
maker Yvonne Rainer. When Yvonne Rainer stepped onto the dance stage in 1960, she radically changed the genre. Her minimalist choreographies dispensed with narrative and overstatement. Instead they used movements and poses from everyday life, combined with texts, films and sound recordings. Already her dance adopted the means of film montage.
We were allowed to accompany the artist at his exhibition with different interviews. Also we filmed a rehersal of TRIO A and a performance of "Spiral Down & Assisted Living: Good Sports 2".
