A lovingly re-created, radical performance piece from the 1960s -- very much of its time -- still has plenty to teach us about the interpretation of experience and the transformation of the mundane. That's the big achievement of "Parades and Changes, Replays," which opened a four-night run Wednesday at REDCAT. Choreographer Anna Halprin and composer Morton Subotnick are pioneers in art-making processes and philosophies that have reshaped contemporary music, dance and media. First presented in San Francisco, their seminal 1965 collaboration has been newly realized by a team of French artists led by Anne Collod, a specialist in dance reconstruction.
