DESCRIPTION
   In August 1960, the choreographer Anna Halprin taught an experimental workshop attended by Simone Forti and Yvonne Rainer on her dance deck on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, north of San Francisco. Within two years, Forti’s conceptually forceful dance constructions had premiered in Yoko Ono’s loft and Rainer had cofounded the ground-breaking Judson Dance Theater. Radical Bodies reunites Halprin, Forti, and Rainer for the first time in over fifty-five years. Dance was a fundamental part of the art world in the 1960s. Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, all Californians with Jewish roots, opened the way to a radicalized vision for dance, music and the visual arts that continues to influence choreographers and visual artists around the world to the present day.
   Curated by Ninotchka D. Bennahum (Professor of Theater and Dance, UCSB), Wendy Perron ( Editor-at-Large, Dance Magazine) and Bruce Robertson (Professor of Art History and Director of the AD&A Museum), Radical Bodies: Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, Yvonne Rainer in California and New York, 1955 – 1972 consists of photographs, videos and original scores and drawings by Halprin, Forti and Rainer, as well as work inspired by them (presented in photographs, documents, videos and original works of art) by such artists as Imogen Cunningham, Robert Rauschenberg, George Brecht, and others. It is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, co-published by UC Press, with essays by Bennahum, Perron and Robertson, as well as essays and documents by Simone Forti, John Rockwell (former dance critic of the New York Times) and the composer Morton Subotnick.
