In Context: Trisha Brown Dance Company

Trisha Brown Dance Company performs rarely seen early works of Trisha Brown, one of the most prolific and inventive post-modern choreographers, at the Fishman Space. The theater will be transformed as dancers navigate the space with ropes and harness, as they originally did in Brown’s SoHo loft in the 1970s. To provide further insight into the production, we’ve compiled resources below, and after you’ve attended the show, let us know what you thought by posting in the comments below and on social media using #TBDC.
