About Yvonne Rainer

Yvonne Rainer was born in San Francisco in 1934. She trained as a modern dancer in New York and began to choreograph her own work in l960. She was one of the founders of the Judson Dance Theater in l962, a movement that proved to be a vital force in modern art and dance in the following decades. Since 1972, Rainer has completed seven feature-length films, beginning with Lives of Performers (1972) and more recently The Man Who Envied Women (1985), Privilege (1990), and MURDER and murder (1996). A memoir, Feelings are Facts: a Life, was published by MIT Press in 2006.
