In 2011, revolutionary American choreographer Trisha Brown announced her retirement from the dance company she founded just over forty years prior. Her company paid tribute by embarking on a mammoth international farewell tour, presenting her early works, her traditional stage works and some of the site-specific works that helped define her reputation. Melbourne Festival is proud to present the Australian leg of this tour, for which the Trisha Brown Dance Company will perform no fewer than seventeen of her brilliant, revolutionary, postmodernist dances. This short program of Trisha Brown’s early pieces—including Group Primary Accumulation, Sticks I & II and Curl Curve Back Up—offers a bite-sized taste of the grande dame of dance’s works.
