WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

New York's celebrated Trisha Brown Dance Company returns to BAM with a career-spanning program of new works and revivals. Often referred to as the grande dame of postmodern dance, Trisha Brown has established a unique place in the field with her gravity-bending, fluid, yet unpredictable geometric style. Her revolutionary approach to movement has forever changed the way we look at dance. The BAM season includes Planes (1968). First performed in a gallery, the piece has been re-worked for the stage and features a soundtrack by Simone Forti along with Jud Yalkut's impressionistic film of New York projected onto a wall scaled by three dancers. The bill also includes Glacial Decoy (1979), Brown's first large-scale collaboration with Robert Rauschenberg; the set includes a visual landscape of projected images of homespun Americana. One of the highlights of the program is the U.S. premiere of O z?o?ony/O composite, a 20-minute dance created for three principals of the Paris Opera Ballet. It marks Brown's first foray into the ballet lexicon and is the only dance she has created for a company other than her own. The piece is a quiet mixture of the classical and the modern, bringing together poets Czeslaw Milosz and Edna St. Vincent Millay, composer Laurie Anderson, and painter Vija Celmins. Completing the program is the world premiere of a Baroque-influenced dance work that will serve as the creative foundation for Brown's staging of Rameau's opera Hippolyte et Aricie, which will premiere in France in 2010
