We stand in solidarity with the uprising unfolding across the country following the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Nina Pop, Jamel Floyd, and those affected by generations of structural violence against Black communities.

We're putting together a list of resources for self-education, mutual aid, and ongoing action in the struggle for racial justice.

Yvonne Rainer

Yvonne Rainer, a co-founding member of the Judson Dance Theater in 1962, made a transition to filmmaking following a 15-year career as a choreographer/dancer (1960?1975). After making seven experimental feature films--Lives of Performers (1972), Privilege (1990), MURDER and murder (1996), among others--she returned to dance in 2000 via a commission from the Baryshnikov Dance Foundation for the White Oak Dance Project (After Many a Summer Dies the Swan). Her dances since then include RoS Indexical and Assisted Living: Do You Have Any Money? She has received two Guggenheim Fellowships, two Rockefellers, a Wexner Prize, and a MacArthur Fellowship. A memoir--Feelings Are Facts: a Life--was published by MIT Press in 2006.
