Set and Reset/Reset Wall 1 | phrase material and concept, Trisha Brown (1983)

Trisha Brown’s dances ask for a freely moving body that is at the same time, strong and articulate. In this workshop we will explore fundamental physical states, such as breath, weight, flow, and multi-directionality, that are integral to understanding Trisha Brown’s Choreographic language, and consider internal space and external spatial intent, in preparation for learning the original Wall 1 phrase material of Set and Reset. Using this material we will play with strategies Trisha used to create this complex piece, and eventually build sequences within the kind of improvised ensemble process used by the company during the making of the work.
