By Anna Halprin with Steps Theatre Company for People Challenging AIDS, produced by David Karp 

These candid videos document San Francisco workshops Anna Halprin led in 1986 with a group living with AIDS. Conducted before any AIDS drugs were available, these workshops were among the first efforts to use art-making for healing in response to the AIDS epidemic. They reveal how, with great courage, people can transform something so real, so subjective, and so isolating as the experience of a life-threatening illness into an uplifting creative statement with both collective and individual meaning.
