MASTER CLASSES

Master Classes begin with a warm up concentrating on clarity and freedom of movement, which is then applied to learning Brown’s movement vocabulary through phrases from TBDC repertory. Emphasis is placed on learning movement as the Company does, with attention to detail, spatial clarity, performance quality, and dancing with others.

WORKSHOPS

Workshops expand upon the Master Class components to further explore the range and rigor of Brown’s movement style while developing a greater physicality applicable to any dance form. Our Workshops introduce fundamentals of postural alignment, weight shifting, points of initiation, and anatomical awareness. Workshops are offered in technique, repertory, improvisation, and composition.

FILM SCREENINGS

Trisha Brown Dance Company maintains an archive of the Company’s performances as well as several films about Trisha’s work. Films can be screened in spaces including galleries, lobbies, entryways or windows to educate audiences and enrich the performance experience.es-spring-2014/>here for insightful blog posts by the students of the Yale Dance Theater.

LECTURES, DISCUSSIONS, AND POST-PERFORMANCE Q&A'S

Whether in an informal setting, class, onstage or as a formal lecture, the Company talks offer insight into the core of Brown’s work and complex building process. Talks can take place with TBDC dancers, directors and/or collaborators.

INFORMANCES, BEHIND THE SCENES, AND SCHOOL DAY PERFORMANCES

These lecture/demonstration style performances peel back the layers of proscenium formality to deepen the audience’s knowledge and appreciation of the work.

CHILDREN'S MOVEMENT CLASSES

In these classes for elementary and secondary school students, teachers guide the students through movement based activities, encouraging creative exploration and curiosity within the context of Brown’s dance and visual art work.

EXHIBITIONS/GALLERY INSTALLATIONS

Videos, posters, photos and archival ephemera are displayed in lobbies, galleries and as exhibitions.
Please note: Exhibitions of Trisha Brown’s visual art must be arranged through Sikkema Jenkins & Co.
