Trisha Brown Dance Company Technique and Repertory

Aug 24, 2009 - Aug 28, 2009; Mon - Fri
Technique: 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Repertory: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Students will learn excerpts of Set and Reset from long term company member Vicky Shick. Class begins with a warm-up emphasizing the coordination of alignment, breath, and weight to bring space, direction, and flow of energy through the joints. Students will learn phrases that Trisha developed with subconscious movements and gestures created before the mind is engaged, which she calls "delicate aberrations."

The Trisha Brown Dance Company has presented the work of its legendary artistic director for more than 35 years. Founded in 1970 when Trisha Brown branched out from the experimental Judson Dance Theater to work with her own group of dancers, TBDC offered its first performances at alternative sites in Manhattan’s SoHo. Today, the Company is regularly seen in the landmark opera houses of New York, Paris, London, and many other theaters around the world. The repertory has grown from solos and small group pieces to include major evening-length works and collaborations between Ms. Brown and major visual artists.
