Yvonne Rainer After Many a Summer Dies the Swan: Hybrid (2002)

12:00 am


This Wex-supported video by choreographer and Wexner Prize–recipient Yvonne Rainer considers the passage of time through the lenses of dance and Vienna’s turn-of-the-20th-century avant-garde. Titled after a late Aldous Huxley novel, Rainer’s video poetically interweaves images, texts, and music from Oskar Kokoschka, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and Arnold Schoenberg with footage from a 2001 dance commission for Mikhail Baryshnikov’s White Oak Dance Project. This work was supported through a residency in the center’s Film/Video Studio in 2002. (31 mins., video)
