Yvonne Rainer, co-fondatrice del Judson Dance Theater nel 1962, si è dedicata al cinema dopo quindici anni di carriera come danzatrice/coreografa (1960-1975). Dopo sette lungometraggi sperimentali – tra cui Lives of Performers (1972), Privilege (1990), MURDER and murder (1996) – è tornata alla danza nel 2000 in occasione di una commissione della Baryshnikov Dance Foundation per il White Oak Dance Project (After Many a Summer Dies the Swan).
Le coreografie create da allora sono AG Indexical, with a little help from H.M., RoS Indexical, una commissione per Performa07, Spiraling Down, Assisted Living: Good Sports 2 e Assisted Living: Do you have any money?.



Le sue coreografie e i suoi film sono noti in tutto il mondo. Il lavoro di Rainer è stato riconosciuto e premiato con mostre internazionali e borse di studio, in particolare: due Guggenheim Fellowships, due Rockefeller Grant, il premio Wexner, una MacArthur Fellowship e mostre retrospettive al Kunsthaus Bregenz e Museo Ludwig, Colonia (2012); al Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles; e presso Raven Row, Londra (2014).

La sua autobiografia – Feelings Are Facts: a Life – è stata pubblicata da MIT Press nel 2006 ed una selezione delle sue poesie da Paul Chan per Badlands Unlimited nel 2011.

Andrea Kleine è una scrittrice e performance artist, il cui lavoro ha attraversato danza, teatro, cinema, letteratura e progetti interdisciplinari. Kleine ha ricevuto numerosi riconoscimenti, incarichi e borse di studio tra cui cinque borse della MacDowell Colony e il premio NYFA. Il suo ultimo lavoro, SCREENING ROOM, è stato presentato la prima volta nel dicembre 2014 presso il The Chocolate Factory Theater di New York City. Il suo romanzo, CALF, sarà pubblicato da Counterpoint/Soft Skull nell’autunno 2015.



Yvonne Rainer, a co-founding member of the Judson Dance Theater in 1962, made a transition to filmmaking following a fifteen-year career as a choreographer/dancer (1960-1975). After making seven experimental feature films  — Lives of Performers (1972), Privilege (1990), MURDER and murder (1996), among others — she returned to dance in 2000 via a commission from the Baryshnikov Dance Foundation for the White Oak Dance Project (After Many a Summer Dies the Swan). Her dances since then include AG Indexical, with a little help from H.M., RoS Indexical, a Performa07 commission, Spiraling Down, Assisted Living: Good Sports 2, and Assisted Living: Do you have any money?.

Her dances and films have been shown worldwide, and her work has been rewarded with museum exhibitions, fellowships, and grants, most notably two Guggenheim Fellowships, two Rockefeller grants, a Wexner Prize, a MacArthur Fellowship, and retrospective exhibitions at Kunsthaus Bregenz and Museum Ludwig, Cologne (2012), the Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles and Raven Row, London (2014).
A memoir — Feelings Are Facts: a Life — was published by MIT Press in 2006. A selection of her poetry was published in 2011 by Paul Chan’s Badlands Unlimited.
