Proscenium Works 1979–2011
“She took the everyday movement of our pedestrian lives and gave it back to us new.” —New York Times
While Trisha Brown’s uncontested legacy as a choreographic maverick and the grande dame of postmodern dance will live on for future generations, her company will soon be disbanding and its 40-year relationship with the Walker will no longer include staged works. Don’t miss the chance to catch highlights from Brown’s catalogue of iconic works made for the stage on the company’s must-see final tour.
The retrospective includes I’m going to toss my arms—if you catch them they’re yours (2011; live music by Alvin Curran), the final work of Brown’s career; the beloved Set and Reset (1983; music by Laurie Anderson), with relaxed, playful choreography accented by black-and-white design and costumes by Robert Rauschenberg; If you couldn’t see me (1994; music and visual presentation by Rauschenberg), a seductively beautiful female solo never before performed in the Twin Cities; and Astral Convertible (1989; music by John Cage), featuring an interactive sound and light set by Rauschenberg.
