Lecture & Talks

I offer a 60 minute talk that can be booked as a stand alone event or in combination with performances and workshops of Yvonne Rainer’s repertoire. I am also available to join panel discussions and group talks on themes related to her work and my experiences as a transmitter, performer, lecturer and writer.

LINEAGES – Online Public talk with Barney O’Hanlon & Sara Wookey, facilitated by Melina Bielefelt

What role does LINEAGE play in one’s artistic journey? How have our artistic influences shaped us, supported us and propelled us forward? This conversation will focus on two dance and performance practitioners, Barney O’Hanlon, member of the SITI Company, and Sara Wookey, independent artist, who have been influenced by intergenerational exchanges with iconic artists Mary Oliver and Yvonne Rainer from the Grand Union and beyond. As we connect past to future and self to others, we invite you to reflect on your own lineage and to share thoughts, questions and insights as part of this public event.
