These two engaging films—Out of Boundaries and Who Says I Have to Dance in a Theater—provide insights into Anna Halprin’s creative philosophy, teaching methods, and performances, serving as an informative follow-up to Ruedi Gerber’s Breath Made Visible. In lively conversations Anna articulates her ideas, describing the trajectory of her work, distinguishing her method from traditional choreography, clarifying her pioneering concept of task-oriented movement, and much more. In addition, there is footage from important past performances and revealing excerpts from the rehearsals for the 2004 performances at the Festival d’Automne in Paris.
