San Francisco Dancers Workshop and Tamalpa Institute

This exhibit includes works from the San Francisco Dancers' Workshop (SFDW) and the Tamalpa Institute. Anna founded SFDW in 1959, with dancers Trisha Brown, Simone Forti, and Yvonne Rainer, and artists John Cage and Robert Morris. The Tamalpa Institute was founded in 1978. Works featured include those choreographed and performed by SFDW and Tamalpa Institute members as well as works featuring audience participation.

The sections include images from a selection of works sampled from the Anna Halprin Papers and are listed in alphabetical order with the final section including a smaller sampling of her earlier works.
