snip:

”Lawrence Halprin built a Dance Deck for his wife at their home, which incorporated and responded to the existing trees rather than removing them. It was the first time she danced on a surface that was not rectangular, which she has said had a great impact on her practice as a dancer. At a time when the Fluxus art movement had great momentum (Anna traded scripts for performances with Yoko Ono, who wrote the first anthology of the New York Fluxus scene), Lawrences plans for Sea Ranch were also anti-commercial, integrating the natural coastal environment rather than paving it over like the condominium developments that
followed.”
