Concluding the company’s three-year retrospective “Proscenium Works, 1979—2011” tour, Trisha Brown Dance Company presents three of Brown’s iconic, postmodern masterpieces— Set and Reset which premiered at BAM in 1983 , PRESENT TENSE (2003), and Newark (Niweweorce) (1987). The engagement marks 40 years of collaboration with BAM, where the company first performed in 1976.
An icon of contemporary dance, Trisha Brown has spent her career making dances that changed and challenged the form, from her experimental work with the Judson Dance Theater Collective, to her early site-specific dances that took place on rooftops and walls, to the fluid, precise movement of her 30 years of staged works. The BAM program will offer New York audiences the opportunity to revisit three large-scale proscenium dances in Brown’s richly layered oeuvre.
