SENIORS ROCKING, a companion piece to the feature length film BREATH MADE VISIBLE, is a short documentary that unveils the artistic process and captures the communal energy behind the unique performance created by American dance pioneer Anna Halprin with senior citizens from all walks of life at the Redwood Retirement Center in Marin County, CA. Led by Anna Halprin's belief in dance's power to teach, heal and transform, the film portrays and follows these senior citizens expressing their legacy through dance from the initial tentative rehearsals to the joyful celebration of the culminating performance.
