Breath Made Visible
CH 2009 80'
Since seven decades Anna Halprin (*1920), a pioneer of dance from the US, in her work and performances searches for answers to the question: How can we closely link life and dance? Her work has influenced experimental Postmodern Dance in a decisive way. The film combines recent interviews with excerpts from Halprin's performances through time: from her early work to her tours in Europe, her retreat caused by cancer, to her comeback with a solo performance in New York at the age of 86 we participate in Halprin's itinerary and experience the rise of dance as art and as a form of enjoying life!
