Resumen / Sinópsis
This comprehensive biography examines Anna Halprin’s fascinating life in the context of American culture. As she follows Anna’s development from youth into old age, Ross describes in engrossing detail the artist’s roles as dancer, creator, performance theorist, community leader, cancer survivor, healer, wife, mother, grandmother, and elder. “Ross’s book treats Halprin as the iconoclast that she is: breaking old habits, setting out far from known paths, pioneering, inventing, combining,” writes Richard Schechner.
