Trisha Brown

Trisha Brown is considered the most widely acclaimed choreographer to emerge from the postmodern era. Brown began showing her work with the Judson Dance Theater in the 1960s and pushed the limits of what could be considered appropriate movement for choreography. Soon, no setting was exempt as a stage—including rooftops, the sides of buildings, and interior walls; collaborators have included Robert Rauschenberg, John Cage, and Laurie Anderson. She founded the Trisha Brown Dance Company in 1970 and has flourished by exploring ideas through the dance cycles she creates and by collaborating on large-scale theatrical productions and operas. Brown was awarded a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, two John Simon Guggenheim Fellowships, and numerous awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and other organizations. Brown has a long affiliation with BAM that began in 1976 and includes repertory presentations in 1981, 1983, 1991, 1996, and 2009, and her full-length L’Orfeo in1999.Brown has a long affiliation with BAM that began in 1976 and includes presentations in 1981, 1983 (during the first Next Wave Festival), 1996 when BAM presented Trisha Brown at 25: Post Modern and Beyond, and in 1999 with the opera L'Orfeo.
