IMMA in association with Dublin Dance Festival. Irish Premiere | USA
One of the most influential artists of the last 50 years, Yvonne Rainer was the first choreographer to include pedestrian movements in her works, altering the very vocabulary of dance.
This special programme presents her iconic early dance works Trio A with Flag (1966), Talking Solo from Terrain (1963) and Chair/Pillow (1969), and brings the NYC-based artist to Dublin for an historic conversation about her career.
As part of this programme, each event includes a pre-performance talk, offering audiences deeper insight into the works of this pioneering artist.
