Opal Loop/Cloud Installation #72503; Son of Gone Fishin; Solo Olos; Rogues (New York Live Arts Residency)
Trisha Brown Dance Company
The iconic Trisha Brown Dance Company is in residence for a series of performances, classes and discussions, highlighting Brown’s investigations of complexity and subtle variations on unison and non-unison movement, its degrees and dynamics, its aberrations and reversals. Performance highlights include works from Brown’s "Unstable Molecular Structure" cycle: Opal Loop/Cloud Installation #72503 (1980) and the rarely-seen Son of Gone Fishin’ (1981), with music by Robert Ashley, Brown’s first music collaboration. With an evanescent fog sculpture by Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya, Opal Loop features Brown’s signature sinuous movement, fluidly timed and spaced. The program also includes Solo Olos (1976) and Rogues (2011), with a score by Alvin Curran.
