Trisha Brown: Planes

Part of Trisha Brown: So That the Audience Does Not Know Whether I Have Stopped Dancing

Planes is a 1968 dance which is presented in-gallery on Thursdays and Saturdays as part of the exhibition Trisha Brown: So That the Audience Does Not Know Whether I Have Stopped Dancing. Local dance companies, along with student-dancers from the University of Minnesota, trained with Trisha Brown during her visit to the Walker in April. Each week a different company performs the piece, which finds the dancers scaling a wall upon which a film is projected. As the dancers move, the clarity with which one perceives “up” and “down” fades, and suddenly one is watching bodies suspended or falling through the air.

Performances are on the half-hour beginning at 6:00 pm on Thursdays, 11:00 am on Saturdays. (On days when Planes is not performed live, a recorded performance is displayed on a monitor.)
