Celebrating the Life and Work of Trisha Brown

Following the afternoon screenings from the Trisha Brown Archive, curated by Cori Olinghouse, the evening discussion features Art historian Susan Rosenberg, associate artistic director and former Trisha Brown Dance Company member Diane Madden, and former rehearsal director and choreographer Gwen Welliver. Moderated by Frank Hentschker. Susan Rosenberg’s recent publication on the artist, Trisha Brown: Choreography as Visual Art (Wesleyan, 2016) will also be available at the event.

“One of the most acclaimed and influential choreographers and dancers of her time, Trisha Brown’s groundbreaking work forever changed the landscape of art. A student of Anna Halprin, Brown participated in the choreographic composition workshops taught by Robert Dunn–from which Judson Dance Theater was born–greatly contributing to the fervent interdisciplinary creativity that defined 1960s New York. Expanding the physical behaviors that qualified as dance, she discovered the extraordinary in the everyday, and brought tasks, rulegames, natural movement and improvisation into the making of choreography.
