World-renowned postmodern dance pioneer Anna Halprin returns to UC Berkeley to present a weekend of dance, including the final performance of her revolutionary 1965 work “Parades and Changes” as part of BAM/PFA’s L@TE program, as well as a showing of her community-empowering “Planetary Dance” featuring TDPS dance students.

Visionary choreographer Anna Halprin performs a new version of her iconic work Parades and Changes, her final staging of the piece that formed the foundation for her subsequent career. For this last staging, Halprin is reunited with her original composer, electronic music pioneer Morton Subotnick, longtime collaborator and lighting designer Jim Cave, and choreographer and associate director Shinichi Iova-Koga.

This performance is part of Anna Halprin / MATRIX 246, which also presents scores and ephemera related to the history of Parades and Changes in Gallery 1.

This program is sponsored by a grant from the University of California Institute for Research in the Arts.

Anna Halprin / MATRIX 246 is organized by Assistant Curator Dena Beard. The performances of Parades and Changes are made possible in part by The Creative Work Fund, a program of the Walter and Elise Haas Fund supported by generous grants from ArtPlace, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and The James Irvine Foundation. Additional support is provided by The Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation, the Zellerbach Family Foundation, the Fleishhacker Foundation, Meyer Sound, and The Apartment, Vancouver. The performances are a fiscally sponsored project of Dancers’ Group. The MATRIX Program is made possible by a generous endowment gift from Phyllis C. Wattis and the continued support of the BAM/PFA Trustees.
