“… the storm of dance joins the storm of music, culminating in a rousing finale, breathtaking in its spatial and rhythmic architecture.”
-Wendy Perron, The New York Times

In Geometry of Quiet, Brown’s second work to the music of Salvatore Sciarrino, she matched the poignancy and delicacy of the music with choreography that implies a personal, emotional intimacy. The organic sounds of the flute seem to emanate from the sail-like banners that form the first theatrical set Brown has designed herself.
