A Truncated History of the Universe for Dummies; a Rant Dance. Yvonne Rainer, one of the founders of the Judson Dance Theater (1962), made a transition to filmmaking following a fifteen-year career as a choreographer/dancer (1960-1975). Her experimental feature-length films include Lives of Performers (1972), Privilege (1990), MURDER and murder (1996), and many others. Rainer returned to dance in 2000 via a commission from the Baryshnikov Dance Foundation (After Many a Summer Dies the Swan). Museum retrospectives of her work — including drawings, photos, films, notebooks, and memorabilia — have been presented at Kunsthaus Bregenz and Museum Ludwig, Cologne (2012); the Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles; Jeu de Paume, École des Beaux Artes, La Ferme du Buisson, Paris, and Raven Row, London (2014). Rainer’s published work includes the memoir Feelings Are Facts: A Life (MIT Press, 2006), Work: 1961-73 (1974), The Films of Y.R. (1989), A Woman Who…: Essays, Interviews, Scripts (1999), and Moving and Being Moved (2017). She is a recipient of two Guggenheim Fellowships, a MacArthur Fellowship, and a U.S.A. Fellowship.
