Talking Dance: Trisha Brown



Dance pioneer Trisha Brown discusses her three-part work El Trilogy (2000), with Walker performing arts senior curator Philip Bither. The piece explores strategies that echo musical structures found in jazz, among them interaction, fluidity, and spontaneity. The three distinct works—Five-Part Weather Invention, Rapture to Leon James, and Groove and Countermove—are set to jazz scores created in collaboration with Dave Douglas, who performed live during the presentation at the Walker with five of New York’s finest jazz improvisers.
