Judson artists themselves were very involved in various mediums, including film. None more so than Yvonne Rainer, who went from choreographer to filmmaker to choreographer again. This screening features her seminal film of a performance of a rehearsal, LIVES OF PERFORMERS, bridging the gap between her extensive performance work and the film work that was soon to follow.
