Yvonne Rainer Retrospective

Film About a Woman Who… is a meditation on ambivalence that plays with cliché and the conventions of soap opera while telling the story of a woman whose sexual dissatisfaction masks an enormous anger (1974, 16mm to DCP, 105 minutes).

Preceded by Trio A, a choregraphed performance that has undergone transformations over the decades since this 1978 recording, yet remains characterized by “…its unmodulated continuity and its imperative involving the gaze” – Yvonne Rainer. (1978, digital file, 10 minutes).

Celebrate the ground-breaking films by legendary choreographer, dancer, and writer Yvonne Rainer through a complete retrospective of her work. Please check back for details as this retrospective continues in summer 2023.
