The Trisha Brown Dance Company has presented the work of its legendary artistic director for more than 37 years. Founded in 1970, when Trisha Brown branched out from the experimental Judson Dance Theater to work with her own group of dancers, the company offered its first performances at alternative sites in Manhattan’s Soho. Today, it is regularly seen in the landmark opera houses of New York, Paris, London, and many other theaters around the world. The repertory has grown from solos and small group pieces to include major evening-length works and collaborations between Brown and renowned visual artists. The program presented at Swarthmore will include “You can see us” (’95), “Foray Foret” (’90) and the classic “Set and Reset” (’83). These dances showcase Brown’s frequent collaboration with artist Robert Rauschenberg.

This event is made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
