In the summer of 1966, dance pioneer Anna Halprin and her husband, landscape architect Lawrence Halprin, embarked on a series of experimental, experiential, cross-disciplinary workshops in northern California that blurred the boundaries of architecture, choreography, ecology, music, cinematography, and being itself. That summer, and again in 1968 and 1971, these “Experiments in Environment” brought together artists, dancers, musicians, filmmakers architects, and environmental designers in provocative, pioneering experiences. This photo essay includes selected images from the 2016 California Historical Society exhibition on the Halprins—Environment: The Halprin Workshops, 1966-1971.
