Summary
Disc 1 features Trisha Brown, a choreographer of contemporary dance, who is instrumental in changing the limits of modern dance. In the 1960s Brown created works which attempted to defy gravity and challenge dancers to experiment with the dynamics of stability. Her search for her own style in dance and the formation of her own company in 1970 showcase her unique ideas of movement. This DVD presents eighteen of Brown's major performances.
Disc 2 presents a conversation between Trisha Brown and art historian, Klaus Kertess, in which she reminisces about her dance education, early years in New York working with Simone Forti, Yvonne Rainer, Steve Paxton, Anna Halprin, and Deborah Hay, work with Judson Dance Theater and her fellow choreographers, as well as commemting on the creation of her own characteristic style.
