Trisha Brown Dance Company (TBDC) has presented the work of its legendary Founding Artistic Director, Trisha Brown, for over 40 years. Founded in 1970 when Brown branched out from the experimental Judson Dance Theater to work with her own group of dancers, TBDC offered its first performances at alternative sites in Manhattan’s SoHo. Today, the Company is regularly seen in landmark opera houses and theaters around the world. The repertory has grown from solos and small group pieces to include major evening-length works and collaborations between Brown and renowned visual artists. When Brown retired as Artistic Director of the Company in 2013, the board appointed long-time dancers Diane Madden and Carolyn Lucas as Associate Artistic Directors.
In 2013, Trisha Brown Dance Company embarked on a three-year Proscenium Works, 1979-2011 tour showcasing Brown’s now-complete collection of major stage works, featuring the significant scenic and compositional components created by her collaborators including Robert Rauschenberg, Donald Judd, Robert Ashley and Laurie Anderson.
The tour includes performances in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Greece, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Turkey, Canada, and the United Kingdom, and within the United States to California, Connecticut, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin as well as New York City.
