Compass

Trisha Brown, the most widely acclaimed choreographer to emerge from the postmodern era, first came to public notice when she began showing her work with the Judson Dance Theater in the 1960s. Trisha Brown is known for her work in the visual arts, including improvisational works combining dance and drawing, and collaborations with artists including Robert Rauschenberg, John Cage, Laurie Anderson and Terry Winters. To create each print from this series (in collaboration withGraphicstudio) the artist used her feet to make impressions of a variety of movements onto an evenly coated soft ground plate.

This captivates me and I determined to see a dance choreographed by Trisha Brown one of these days. Twyla Tharp is interesting and wrote an autobiography three or four years ago. I should look and see what she's working on. Hope all is well with you, Moon and that you are happy blogging.
