Trisha Brown redefined choreography as the art of posing problems to be investigated through dance. However, when she first began presenting work, some were skeptical if it even fell into the concerns of the dance world. She responded, “I was a choreographer and I was dealing with elements of choreography” (Brown 1981). Conversations amongst her artistic circle in the 60s and 70s, such as John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, and Robert Morris, were about “gravity and velocity and distance and real physical things I was dealing with” (Brown 1981). Her objective? “I wanted to make a very good dance” (1982).
