At 88, choreographer Anna Halprin's spirit of dance continues to grow and spread
Wednesday April 29, 2009

Next time you plop in front of the TV because you're just too tired for anything else, remember the sociologists who tell us that the country is aging, and that we should plan for it. Landscape architect Lawrence Halprin and dancer-choreographer Anna Halprin may not be your average "senior" couple, but we could do worse than to admire the most recent gift this long-lasting personal and professional relationship has given the Bay Area. At the very least, it should get us off the couch.

Lawrence Halprin is 92; Anna Halprin is 88. They have been married for 68 years. Both are still working. Their latest project is Spirit of Place, which Anna calls "something I wanted to do for Larry." Produced by Dancers' Group as part of National Dance Week, Spirit is an installation piece inspired by Larry's redesign of Stern Grove's amphitheater in San Francisco's fog belt.
