Trisha Brown Dance Company

Trisha Brown Dance Company is seeking female and non-binary dancers to commit to domestic and international touring of site-specific and proscenium Brown repertory, and the development of new work. These paid company positions will begin with rehearsal periods in January-March 2024 for performances in the 2024 and 2025 season.  



Please complete the audition form found at www.trishabrowncompany.org

The deadline to submit this application is Monday, November 20, 2023 at 9:00pm EST. Those selected to audition will be notified by Monday, December 4, 2023. 



The Trisha Brown Dance Company is dedicated to the performance and preservation of the work of Trisha Brown and projects related to her legacy. Established in 1970, TBDC has toured throughout the world presenting work, teaching, and building relationships with audiences and artists alike. 

Brown engaged collaborators who are themselves leaders in music, theater, and the visual arts, including visual artists Robert Rauschenberg, Donald Judd, and Elizabeth Murray and musicians Laurie Anderson, John Cage, and Alvin Curran, to name a few. With these partners, Brown created an exceptionally varied body of work, with premieres and performances for NYC audiences and international counterparts. When Brown retired as head of her Company in 2013, the Board appointed longtime Company members Diane Madden and Carolyn Lucas as Associate Artistic Directors with the mandate that they present her dances in a variety of spaces, indoors and out, proscenium and alternative; develop, deepen, and expand the Company’s educational initiatives; and treat the Company’s archive as a living organism to be used to better understand her work, in particular, and dance in general.
