May 14 & 16
Program A, Thursday at 8pm
Program B, Saturday at 7:30pm
Over the course of fifty years, Trisha Brown’s movement investigations found the extraordinary in the everyday and challenged existing perceptions of what constitutes performance. She pushed the limits of chorography and altered modern dance forever. After suffering for several years with Alzheimer’s disease, Brown retired in 2013. The invaluable repertory left behind will no longer be presented in proscenium theatres after the end of 2015.
OZ will present more than eight works by this historic figure of post-modern dance, in two separate programs so that Nashville audiences can witness the development and similarities of Brown’s choreographic vocabulary over three decades in one evening.
Proscenium set up
Opal Loop (1980), featuring original set by Donald Judd
Present Tense (2003) featuring music by John Cage
Early Works (1960s-1970s)
Son of Gone Fishin’ (1981)
You Can See Us (1994)
