Ceremony of Us by Robby Herbst
In 1969, the Mark Taper Forum was the location for the Los Angeles Festival of Performing Arts's most unique offering: a movement experiment between Studio Watts and celebrated choreographer Anna Halprin's San Francisco Dancers’ Workshop. The piece they created, Ceremony of Us, set itself the goal of making a dance happening of a healing encounter between conflicting races.
