Episode 47 with Daria Halprin Part II

January 30th, 2019

Forty Years of Giving Movement

Back to People

In this Part II episode with Daria Halprin we talk about the expressive arts work she’s spent forty plus years creating. We cover the “transportation” issue of how to take your “new self” out into the world and the importance of assuming aesthetic responsibility. Bonus: Daria shares about the last time she made a self-portrait, what still surprises her, and what she’s still fascinated with pursuing over the next 20 years.

Last week we got to hear Daria’s story, from growing up dancing with her mother Anna Halprin, to being thrust into the spotlight in film and then her traumatic experiences sending her searching for something different.  - if you haven’t heard that be sure to circle back to it that episode, E46 Through Trauma and Tragedy from One Stage to the Next, after this.
