Yale Dance Theater 2014: The Choreography of Trisha Brown
by Trisha Brown
Join us on April 16 for Yale Dance Theater’s 2014 performance featuring the groundbreaking work of Trisha Brown. After emerging in the early 1960s through the collective Judson Dance Theater, Brown moved away from collaborative work to craft a movement style entirely her own. Her choreography circa 1960-2012 charts vivid mental, emotional, and physical images–movement scores that draw on expansive sources, from science, music, literature, and the visual arts to kinesthetic images generated by the body’s own conscious and unconscious thought. From the intimate quality inherent to her style to her innovative compositional methods and performance contexts, Trisha Brown’s choreography has altered our understanding of what dance and performance can be. YDT’s spring 2013 project is sponsored by the Arts Discretionary Fund in Yale College and the Lionel F. Conacher and Joan T. Dea Fund, in cooperation with the dance studies curriculum, Theater Studies, and Alliance for Dance at Yale.
