Trained as a modern dancer, Yvonne Rainer began to integrate short films into her live performances, then quickly transitioned into filmmaking. She has since completed seven experimental feature films. In 2000, Rainer returned to dance with a piece called After Many a Summer Dies the Swan. Most recently, she choreographed a re-visioning of George Balanchine’s Agon (1957); of Vaslav Nijinsky’s Rite of Spring (1913); and of Spiraling Down (2009), a meditation on soccer, aging and war.
