Since the 1950s, Anna Halprin has been shaking up the field of dance, breaking down barriers between stage and audience, between generations and ethnic communities, and working with illness and with nature.

Anna Halprin, Dancing Life / Danser la vie, opens a doorway into her studio - a place where art and life meet; a place of learning, of experimentation but also of collective creation.
This interactive DVD-ROM presents the unique approach of this U.S. dancer through more than six hours of video covering the entirety of a recent workshop, previously unpublished interviews and extracts of precious archive material.
