May 2—7 The Joyce in Chelsea
Trisha Brown Dance Company returns with a program that pays homage to Brown’s collaborations with composer Alvin Curran. For M.G.: The Movie (1991) is a haunting memorial to Michel Guy, the French Minister of Culture and first director of the annual Festival d’Automne à Paris. The guiding principles for this choreography are enigma and time - not measured time - but the perception of time and its inconsistency. Also featuring Curran’s music is Brown's Rogues (2011). A poignant study in rhythm, timing, and kinesthetic transmission, the work marks a return to Brown’s exploration of unembellished physicality. In celebration of Brown's dynamic legacy, the company will also present its first choreographic commission, Let’s Talk About Bleeding, an original work by Cuban-born artist Judith Sánchez Ruíz with musical direction and composition by Adonis Gonzalez. Let's talk about bleeding places Brown's body of work in dialogue with contemporary artistic voices.
