Choreographer's Note: This performance uses Line Up (1976) as a choreographic frame to examine principles and choreographic forms from Trisha Brown's creative legacy (including: Set and Reset, Locus, Water Motor and Line Up, among others). Our process has been to conjure some of Brown's impulses and strategies from over the years as resources for the students to develop their own creative practices. What has emerged is a creative dialogue between the Trisha Brown Dance Company (TBDC Choreographic Assistant and former dancer Carolyn Lucas, TBDC Archivist and former dancer Cori Olinghouse and former TBDC dancer Laurel Tentindo) and students from Eugene Lang College.
