“Brown has defined the cutting edge of American dance since her first experiments at the Judson Dance Theater in the ’60s . . . ” – Village Voice
An icon of contemporary dance, Trisha Brown has consistently pushed the limits of choreography, creating some of the most compelling and visually powerful work of the past four decades–from her roots in the experimental Judson Dance Theater Collective to her early site-specific dances that took place on rooftops and down walls to the fluid, precise movement of her more recent work. This evening of new and classic dances includes Foray Forêt, a signature work by the company originally commissioned by the Walker in 1991 (featuring the sounds of an invisible marching band), and Present Tense, a new work set to the music of John Cage. Brown’s latest, I love my robots, is “a work of irresistible charm and silliness” (New York Times) with a sweet and subtle score by Laurie Anderson.
