Watch the final performance of Chair/Pillow and observe how research, investigation, and rehearsal informed university and high school students performance of the dance. In the beginning it was difficult for the students to embody the functional movements of lifting, carrying, and tossing the pillow without dancey embellishments. But in the end, see how they were successful manipulating a chair and a pillow with the matter of fact quality that Yvonne Rainer intended.
