Trisha Brown Dance Company / Joyce Virtual Broadcast


Recommended Posts

Wasn't sure where to place this recent program of a Trisha Brown Dance Company / Joyce Virtual Broadcast. Hers, along with Cunningham's, seems to be a lexicon that many contemporary choreographers borrow from, so it's good to see it firsthand from time to time.

What's interesting to me is how the dancers seem to continually clear the space that a highly codified choreography could have occupied. And that the forms are part of a logical system which never arrives at a total. 

A few quiet minutes of a Geometry of Quiet trailer. Lovely dancing.

"Hers, along with Cunningham's, seems to be a lexicon that many contemporary choreographers borrow from, so it's good to see it firsthand from time to time. "

You put your finger on it with this, although it's not just Brown, but others of her cohort with the Judson/Grand Union that form a stylistic shift away from the earlier American modern dance generation.  Deborah Jowitt's description always rings true for me.

"Supple, casual, grounded, a bit shambly, athletic, full of subterfuges, the basic style or look has as many substyles as did the pulled-up, large scale, muscles-in-stress look that was new and fashionable 30 or so years ago."
