Trisha Brown, one of the most acclaimed choreographers of contemporary dance, first came to notice in New York in the 1960s and along with like-minded artists, Yvonne Rainer, Steve Paxton and Simone Forti, Brown began showing her work with the Judson Dance Theatre, a “hot-bed of dance revolution”. During this time Brown, along with her contemporaries and collaborators who at the time included Robert Rauschenberg and Laurie Anderson, pushed the limits of what was then considered appropriate movement for choreography and revolutionized modern dance forever. Founding her company in 1970, Trisha Brown developed her own choreography and style with her own unique ideas of movement.
Over one weekend in Glasgow, audiences will have the rare opportunity to see works by the legendary figure of American modern dance. If you couldn’t see me is Brown’s solo collaboration with Robert Rauschenberg, whose costume design and sound score contribute to the piece’s seductive beauty. Foray Forêt, another collaboration with Rauschenberg features gold costumes and marks the beginning of Ms. Brown’s elegant and mysterious Back to Zero cycle, in which she pulled back from external virtuosity to investigate unconscious movement. These pioneering earlier works are performed alongside the more recent Les Yeux et l'âme, a dance adaptation of Brown's full opera Pygmalion (2010), with the seminal For MG : the movie, the choreographer's exploration of unconscious movement concluding the programme.
Please note the Suinday performance will be followed by a film programme which is free to performance ticket holders.
