Breathing Room & Conversations Without Walls: Barbara Dilley & Yvonne Rainer with Wendy Perron
Next Saturday, November 21, at 12pm ET, join us on Youtube for a Conversation Without Walls between dancer and Danspace co-founder, Barbara Dilley, and artist, Yvonne Rainer, facilitated by writer, Wendy Perron. This CWW celebrates the 50th anniversary of the legendary Grand Union's first performances and the publication of Perron's new book, The Grand Union: Accidental Anarchists of Downtown Dance, 1970 – 1976 (Wesleyan University Press, 2020).
The Grand Union was a Soho, NYC-based collective that came out of Rainer’s work, the task-oriented Continuous Project Altered Daily (1970). This group, which Perron coins “the movie stars of our neighborhood,” consisted of Becky Arnold, Trisha Brown, Barbara Dilley, Douglas Dunn, David Gordon, Nancy Lewis, Steve Paxton, Yvonne Rainer, and Lincoln Scott.
