Stanford University Course - Halprin's Ten Myths to be recreated in an intergenerational project

by Haas Center For Public Service
November 20, 2006
Stanford, CA
This quarter, Dance 111 (Drama 157H), initiated by Associate Professor Janice Ross (Drama), a member of the Haas Center's Faculty Steering Committee and part of the center's Community-Based Research Fellows Program, brings dance legend Anna Halprin to campus to work with students and local senior citizens recreating three of Halprin's Ten Myths. These audience participation dances premiered in 1967, helping to launch post-modern dance and experimental theater. Known as one of the architects of experimental dance and theater in America, Halprin will teach this special workshop class on arts and community, which is open to all regardless of major or dance experience.

Ross's course invites senior citizens from local communities to join the 86-year-old Visiting Artist and enrolled Stanford students. The narratives of these participants will be incorporated into the dances, and the class will culminate in performances in November to be followed by public question and answer sessions with the students, seniors, and Halprin. This opportunity is co-sponsored by the Dance Division and The Stanford Center for Longevity and received support from the Stanford President's Fund. The reconstruction of Ten Myths is made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts through the American Masterpieces: Dance program administered by Dance/USA.
