The Trisha Brown Dance Company performed Proscenium Works, 1979-2011 in the Bryn Mawr Goodhart Auditorium this past Friday and Saturday nights.
This was a very big deal because the performance is part of the Bryn Mawr College Performing Arts Series Trisha Brown: In the New Body, “a yearlong festival of the innovative choreographer’s artistry” through performances, classes, lectures, and exhibition.
As a treat to myself for finishing not 1, but 2 midterms today, I took the time to visit the Bryn Mawr Canaday gallery for the exhibition on the art of Trisha Brown and her collaborators.
Trisha Brown: In the Body is a yearlong festival of exhibition, performances, classes, and lectures hosted by a collaboration between Bryn Mawr College Performing Arts Series and The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage. (Additional partners include Pennsylvania Ballet, The Barnes Foundation, Drexel, and WHYY). I must have been living under a rock because I actually did not know this project was such a big deal until I did some research on my own. The exhibit was curated by Academic Liaison for the Art and Artifact Collections Matthew Feliz and Academic Liaison for Art and Artifacts/Visiting Lecturer Brian Wallace. I would like to help spread news of this project to the undergraduate community, so I’m blogging about it here.
