In this new adventure Rainer juxtaposes text, dance and excerpts from the two classic films—HELLZAPOPPIN’, a 1941 Hollywood musical, and Zero for Conduct, 1933, by French auteur Jean Vigo—as backdrop and inspiration for some of her choreography.  A melange of intersecting narratives on race, climate change, guilt and the absurd.

Yvonne Rainer announced that HELLZAPOPPIN’: What about the bees? would be her “last dance.” 

So don’t miss it!
