As part of this spring's exploration of the relationship between choreography and visual media, we are delighted to present a rare retrospective of feature-length films by legendary choreographer Yvonne Rainer, programmed by Oliver Fuke.


Yvonne Rainer, one of the founders of the Judson Dance Theater (1962) and most important choreographers of her day, made seven experimental feature-length films between 1972 and 1996. These films can be seen as crucial interventions in cinema, combining a critical exploration of narrative with innovative strategies, political commitment and humor. They address many important topics – including emotion, power, sexuality, social privilege, gender inequality and notions of ageing – but refuse to offer them a simple, one-sided treatment. Instead, they traverse a number of viewpoints and the complications and contradictions contained within them. This retrospective sees all seven of her feature-length films and one more recent video work screened, with introductions from special guests.
