What Experience Teaches

Spark asks, "After a lifetime pursuing creativity, what do the years teach about art?" Modern dancer Anna Halprin, who is in her eighties, is still performing and honing her craft. Actor and director Peter Riegert appeared in the off-Broadway debut of the play of "Sexual Perversity in Chicago" 30 years ago; now catch up with him as he directs the 2006 A.C.T production. Meet artists displaced by Hurricane Katrina who find shelter at the Djerassi Resident Artist Program. And take a brief look inside the Dance Improv, a regular event hosted by Kara Davis.
