Going through some old files I found this review I wrote of Jack Walsh's 2015 documentary on Yvonne Rainer. For some reason I now can't recall, the review was never published. I've been thinking a lot about YR lately (am I ever not thinking about YR?), especially about her excellence as a writer and chronicler of her own history. I also think a lot about how she left and came back (to dance). Anyway, I felt like I should release this from my "Old Desktop" folder and into the world, mostly for the stellar quotes from YR and Steve Paxton.
How has this not been done before? For the dance history enthusiast, that question arises just at the mention of Feelings Are Facts: The Life of Yvonne Rainer, a discerning and necessary new documentary about the revolutionary choreographer, performer, filmmaker and writer who helped to usher American dance from modern to postmodern in the 1960s — and who, at 81, is still performing and making work today.Read More
