Trisha Brown, Artistic Director & Choreographer

Brown’s uncontested legacy as a maverick, a renegade, and a pioneer of postmodern dance is celebrated with this farewell tour of works made for the stage, seen one last time in their original context. This program includes I’m going to toss my arms—if you catch them they’re yours, the final work of Brown’s career, which reflects her style with organic, transient movement and a minimalist set of industrial fans. Thirty years old this year, the beloved Set and Reset’s relaxed, playful choreography is accented with superb black-and-white-themed design and costumes by Robert Rauschenberg. Never seen before in Minneapolis, If you couldn’t see me is a seductively beautiful female solo. A calmly physical piece, Astral Convertible is the final piece in Brown’s athletic Valiant Series.
