Dancer, choreographer and filmmaker Yvonne Rainer changed the world of modern dance with her Trio A, a performance based on analysis of the repertoire of human movements. Influenced by John Cage, she developed choreography known as sociopolitical in through which she explored daily movements. At the age of 56, she found herself and came out as lesbian. In 1997 she won the Teddy Award for her film Murder and Murder. In 2000, having been invited by Mikhail Baryshnikov, she made a successful return to choreography, and today, at the age of 80, she continues to work and innovate on stage.
