Anna Halprin/Anne Collod with Morton Subotnick

Anna Halprin/Anne Collod & guests, with Morton Subotnick: parades & changes, replays

“Full of aesthetic rigor and intense emotions, [parades & changes, replays] speaks to everyone… Nothing is missing.” Le Monde

“Anna Halprin is one of the most important and original thinkers working in performance. Her impact on dance, theater and ritual is immense, positive, and life-giving.” Richard Schechner

Improvising around a set of movement and music scores, dancers dress and undress, carry out everyday tasks, invent gestures, and disappear inside swirling rolls of paper in this full-scale reinterpretation of Anna Halprin’s game-changing 1965 work parades & changes, her first “collective creation” and a landmark of postmodern dance. Reinterpreted in collaboration with a star-studded international team of choreographers led by Anne Collod, the new version features music performed live by Morton Subotnick, the electronica pioneer who teamed with Halprin on the original. This “ceremony of trust,” as Halprin calls it, exposes the processes of group performance and insists on dance as both metaphor and medium for artists working together—of being together. Now, nearly 40 years later, Halprin’s utopian opus, once banned in the United States because of its frank treatment of nudity, is re-examined through a contemporary lens and put to the test of today’s social and artistic realities.
