Janine Antoni :: Paper Dance

On July 11, Anna Halprin phoned to say that she was bringing the artist Janine Antoni by BAM/PFA: they had something they wanted to perform. Anna’s community and archive of treasures continually astound me—it’s not unusual for her to pull out an incredibly rare box of Fluxus materials, or to show up with a entourage of Ph.D. candidates, or a new performance idea—yet I was floored by her striking collaboration with Janine. If you were witness to the transcendent paper dance section of last February’s Parades and Changes you will instantly understand the inspiration behind this guerrilla performance in Gallery B.
