Trisha Brown has redefined modern dance throughout her 40-year career as a choreographer. Starting as an experimental dancer of the Judson Dance Theater, Brown has created over 100 dance works since 1961. Now at 77, Brown presents this tour entitled Proscenium Works, which showcases her major stage works, pulling from a lifetime of gems. A visual artist, Brown designs performances based on an instinctual expression of emotion through dance, that is both captivating and evocative. Often dancing without music, dancers throw and contort their bodies across the stage in wild yet controlled beauty.
