Breath Made Visible is a portrait of the American dancer and choreographer Anna Halprin, who is considered a pioneer of postmodern dance in the US owing to her artistic, pedagogic and therapeutic work. For seven years now she has been posing the question: What is dance? Her search for an answer introduced a new era of experiment in theatre, music, happenings and performance art in the US and influenced generations of artists. At the same time she reflects the upheaval that took place in dance as well as in society after the Second World War as well as in the 1960s and 1970s. In vivid images and testimonies, the documentary by the Swiss film-maker Ruedi Gerber shows the life and work of Anna Halprin, who merged life and art.


Following the screening, the author and dance journalist Gabriele Wittmann, publisher of the 2010 volume Anna Halprin: Tanz, Prozesse, Gestalten, will assess the artistic and political dimension in Anna Halprin’s work as a thinking of the “Other” as a gap in evolution, where creativity takes place between interior and exterior.
