Trisha Brown Dance Company at Jacob’s Pillow, August 16-19
Witty, inventive, and free from convention, the prolific choreographer Trisha Brown holds an uncontested legacy as modern dance’s “boundary-pusher” (The Wall Street Journal). The program will include a specially curated work for the Pillow’s 85th Anniversary Season featuring alumni of Trisha Brown Dance Company. The engagement includes TBDC performances of Groove and Countermove (2000) and L’Amour au theatre (2009). There will also be a special performance of Opal Loop (1980), featuring four generations of TBDC dancers and alumni.

With close Pillow connections dating back more than 35 years, Trisha Brown’s accolades include the prestigious National Medal of Arts, a United States Artist Fellow in Dance award, a MacArthur ‘Genius’ Award, and a New York Dance and Performance (“Bessie”) Award for Lifetime Achievement, among countless others.

“I’ve always been attracted and tempted into nearly any situation where the final work is the result of more than one person’s doing.” – Robert Rauschenberg

Robert Rauschenberg’s six-decade career was shaped by his friendships and collaborations with avant-garde choreographers and dancers. Over extended periods, he worked with Trisha Brown, Merce Cunningham, and Paul Taylor, contributing sets, costumes, lighting design, and sound to their dances. These projects in turn focused his interest in time and motion, and helped define his approach to painting, sculpture, printmaking, and photography. In conjunction with the exhibition Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends, this performance program unites the choreography of Brown, Cunningham, and Taylor—three icons of American modern dance rarely seen side by side—in some of their most significant collaborations with Rauschenberg to explore how dance shaped his art, and vice versa.

TBDC Repertory:
You Can See Us. 1995
