The legendary Anna Halprin will be visiting Israel this month as a Fulbright Senior Specialist Program Fellow, with the financial support of the U.S. Department of State and the partnership of the United States-Israel Educational Foundation. Students at both the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance and Seminar Hakibbutzim in Tel Aviv will enjoy lectures, demonstrations, and workshops led by Halprin, a groundbreaking choreographer and trailblazer in the field of expressive arts healing.
The general public can also be inspired by Halprin’s pioneering work by viewing Ruedi Gerber’s documentary about the choreographer. The film, Breath Made Visible, will open the Spirit Film Festival at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque and will also be screened at the Jerusalem Cinematheque.
