Prensented in conjunction with Anna Halprin: Body Radical, Blank Placard Dance is one of Halprin’s most iconic works that inscribes the political dimension of performance in urban and public space. The performance, led by Rosario Sammartino with an introduction by Anna Halprin, includes a large group of dancers as they process through the public spaces of the city, silently carrying blank placards.
