Yvonne Rainer | Live Performances

Live Performances & Talks: Saturday & Sunday, 12 & 13 May, 7:30pm; Matinee Sunday, 13 May, 3:30pm.

IMMA is delighted to present the work of world-class dancer, choreographer, filmmaker, and writer Yvonne Rainer—one of the most influential artistic figures of the last 50 years. Rainer's work has been

foundational across multiple disciplines and movements including dance, cinema, feminism, minimalism, conceptual art, and postmodernism. IMMA will present a selection of Rainer's iconic early film and dance works and will bring the legendary artist to Dublin for a historic conversation about her career.

One of Rainer’s most renowned dance pieces, Trio A with Flag (1966), will be performed live at IMMA with her works Talking Solo from Terrain (1963) and Chair/Pillow (1969). A series of talks and conversations will accompany this programme featuring, amongst others; a lecture by Yvonne Rainer (Sat 12 May, 7.30pm), a conversation between Liz Roche (Liz Roche Company) and Rachael Thomas (Senior Curator, IMMA), and a talk by Chris Dercon (Director, Volksbühne, Berlin) about dance and performance invading the space of the museum, past and present. A series of screenings will also be shown at IMMA from May 2018, featuring the acclaimed film-works Lives of Performers (1972), Privilege (1990) and MURDER and Murder (1996).

Evoking responses that are at once theoretical, political and deeply personal, the work of Yvonne Rainer continues to resonate with today’s shifting world. In the words of the artist Robert Rauschenberg, “Yvonne’s multi-media expertise and her dynamic exposure has shaken the world for years. I have known her through the years of the development. To assist in the continuation is a gift to culture.”

Endeavouring to reflect the many facets of Yvonne Rainer’s practice, IMMA presents the work of Yvonne Rainer using a cross-disciplinary approach working in association with Dublin Dance Festival; the leading dance event on the Irish arts calendar. Each year in May, the Festival brings together dance artists and choreographers from across the world to share vibrant contemporary dance with audiences in Ireland.

All of the early dance works will be taught by choreographer Pat Catterson, Yvonne Rainer’s long-time assistant, performer, and transmitter of her dance-work.
