Cinema Orange: Feelings Are Facts: The Life of Yvonne Rainer

Free Fridays; no charge

Feelings Are Facts: The Life of Yvonne Rainer tells the riveting story of one of America's most important artists. In 1962, as a founding member of Judson Dance Theater, Rainer revolutionized modern dance by introducing everyday movements like walking and running into the dance lexicon. Abandoning choreography in the ‘70s, Rainer introduced narrative techniques into American avant-garde film, turning that genre on its head, too. 


In Feelings Are Facts, we follow Rainer, now 80 and returned to choreography, as she continues to create vibrant, courageous, unpredictable dances that invite audiences to question basic assumptions about art and performance.
