BREATH MADE VISIBLE is the first feature length film about the life and career of Anna Halprin, the American dance pioneer who has helped redefine our notion of modern art with her belief in dance’s power to teach, heal, and transform at all ages of life. This cinematic portrait blends recent interviews with counterparts such as the late Merce Cunningham, archival footage, including her establishment of the first multiracial dance company in the U.S., and excerpts of current performances such as “Parades and Changes” at the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris, to weave a stunning, inspiring account of one of the most important cultural icons in modern dance.
The film is hosted by Nevada Ballet Theatre and the Swiss Consulate. The program will also feature leaders in the Las Vegas Dance Community including Roy Kaiser, Artistic Director of Nevada Ballet Theatre and Louis Kavouras, UNLV Dance Department Chair.
Join us after the program for a light nosh/early dinner at Sultan’s Grill, located in: Trails Village Center, 1910 Village Center Cir #7, Las Vegas, NV 89134.
