Through art and dance we reclaim our primal heritage and move towards a more embodied future.  – Anna Halprin

In each one of us lives a story, a palette of images and experiences stored in our muscles, organs and bones.  Away from the distractions of daily life, this workshop offers time to feel and listen deeply to the powerful intelligence of the body, to play and express with imagination through the arts, to create personal and collective dances. Anna Halprin will present her approach to body and movement that connects the science, philosophy, and art of dance.  Rosario Sammartino, Tamalpa Co-Director and faculty member, will be teaching the afternoon sessions introducing participants to the Tamalpa work which will offer resources to make life/art connections. 

This is a special workshop with Anna, now in her 96th year, at the historic Mountain Home Studio designed for her by her husband, famed architect, Lawrence Halprin.  Mountain Home Studio is set amidst redwood and oak trees on the flanks of Mount Tamalpais in Kentfield, California. It is a short drive to San Francisco, Berkeley, and the Sonoma and Napa wine countries.

Art materials supplied.
Accommodations list provided.

 

The Dance Heritage Coalition has named Anna Halprin one of "America's 100 Irreplaceable Dance Treasures." Her diverse career has spanned the field of dance since the late 1930s, creating revolutionary directions for the art form and inspiring fellow choreographers to take modern dance to new dimensions. A dance innovator, she was an early pioneer in the use of movement/dance as a healing art. She founded the groundbreaking San Francisco Dancer's Workshop in 1955 and the Tamalpa Institute in 1978 with her daughter Daria Halprin. She is the author of several books, and has numerous dance works documented on film, most notably Breath Made Visible by director Ruedi Gerber.
