Ceremony of Us
Taking on the issue of race, Ceremony of Us would turn out to be in equal measure both daring and timid, both a challenge to the status quo of racial sterotypes and an unwitting reinforcement of the sexual and class myths embedded in them. Ceremony of Us premiered February 27, 1969 at Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. It was choreographed and performed by: Anna Halprin, San Francisco Dancers' Workshop, and Studio Watts School for the Arts. The music was by Billy C. Jackson and Casey Sonnabend.
