Transmitting Trio A (1966) with Sara Wookey
Led by Sara Wookey, a group of dance and performance artists learn Yvonne Rainer’s seminal work, Trio A (1966). The starting point for this project is the shared conversation between dance and performance artists around the distinctions between repertoire and reenactment, in particular consideration of how these modes of archiving in live art relate to the increasing interest in presenting performance art and choreography in the museum.
