Trisha Brown Dance Company

This astonishing nine-member company has been challenging the boundaries of contemporary dance since its legendary artistic director, Trisha Brown, founded it four decades ago. Hailed as “the innovative high priestess of postmodern dance” by The New York Times, this dance pioneer began at the Judson Dance Theater where she pushed the limits of accepted dance movement. With the formation of her own company in 1970, Brown explored alternative performance spaces of Soho, staging performances on rooftops and walls, investigating the relationship between dance movement and gravity, and collaborated with renowned artists such as Robert Rauschenberg and Laurie Anderson. Celebrating 40 years of presenting abstract dance that is inventive, intellectual and always cutting edge, the Trisha Brown Dance Company performs an intimate evening of extraordinary dance including a new work entitled Les Yeux et l'ame performed to music from the opera Pygmalion by Rameau as well as other new and revived works from the company’s repertory.
