The Performance Program is part of MoMA’s increased focus on the historical as well as the contemporary practice of performance-based art. The ongoing series brings documentation and reenactments of historic performances, thematic group exhibitions, solo presentations, and original performance works to various locations throughout the Museum.
Choreographer Trisha Brown (American, b. 1936) experiments with space, gravity, and the orientation of the body. She was an essential contributor to the development of postmodern dance in the early 1960s, an innovation associated with New York’s Judson Dance Theater. At MoMA the Trisha Brown Dance Company, which celebrated its fortieth anniversary in 2010, will perform the early works Sticks (1973), Scallops (1973), and Locus Solo (1975) and premiere Roof Piece Re-Layed (2011), based on Roof Piece (1971). Approximate running time is 60 minutes.
In conjunction with the exhibitions On Line: Drawing Through the Twentieth Century and Performance 11: On Line/Trisha Brown Dance Company
