New film about Anna Halprin

The New York Times reports on April 23 that there is a new documentary about the dancer Anna Halprin.  Called “Breath Made Visible”, this 80 minute doco has just opened theatrically at the Cinema Village, 22 East 12th Street in Manhattan.

Anna Halprin is the widow of the late Lawrence Halprin, a famous Marin County landscape architect whose passing I reported on December 9, 2009.  I had taken an intensive workshop with Lawrence Halprin (at Sea Ranch and in San Francisco) in November 1977 (and did another one with him in Sydney in 1981 or thereabouts), and I recall from that workshop how much Anna had influenced his work.

The New York Times has a great online trailer, which includes samples of some of the astonishing footage in the well-made documentary.
