Early works and excerpts from Trisha Brown's vast repertory, performed in an art museum
Trisha Brown’s name is engraved in the annals of contemporary dance history as one of the pioneers from the liminal era when modern dance evolved into postmodern dance. From her time in the early 1960s with Judson Dance Theater, whose experimental work with improvisational dance proved groundbreaking, to her later collaborations with the likes of music artists John Cage and Laurie Anderson, artists Donald Judd and Robert Rauschenberg, and choreographer Merce Cunningham, Brown has been a leading figure in avant-garde dance.
Despite her great influence globally, Brown’s work is rarely performed in Japan. Although she no longer leads her company, the troupe continues to tour the world, reconstructing her archive of work. As part of this project the company comes to Kyoto to perform at the National Museum of Modern Art. There the company presents an omnibus of Brown’s experimental works in the unique setting of a public art museum, transcending the five decades since their first inception to resonate with contemporary audiences in an unconventional performance space. This is a very special opportunity to experience Trisha Brown’s critically incisive, vibrant dance.
