When Trisha Brown died in March 2017, The New York Times paid tribute to her by remarking that “few dance inventors have so combined the cerebral and sensuous sides of dance as Ms. Brown did, and few have been as influential.” Joyce audiences will have the chance to witness the choreographer’s genius when the Trisha Brown Dance Company takes the stage with three pivotal works created between 2000 and 2009, during the choreographer’s final period of dance making. These dances illuminate Brown’s connection to music: Salvatore Sciarrino’s flute in Geometry of Quiet; Dave Douglas's jazz sounds in Groove and Countermove; and Jean-Phillippe Rameau’s baroque opera in L’Amour au théâtre.
