"Strong emotional resonances and a sense of mystery…provokes thunderous, ecstatic applause." – Dance Magazine on O złożony / O composite

A founding member of the revolutionary Judson Dance Theater, contemporary dance icon Trisha Brown returns to BAM with a career-spanning program featuring collaborations with the Paris Opera Ballet, Robert Rauschenberg, Laurie Anderson, and Vija Celmins.

The program includes:

L'Amour au théâtre (2009) World Premiere
A Baroque-influenced dance work set to the music of Jean-Philippe Rameau

O złożony / O composite (2004) US Premiere
Performed by three Paris Opera Ballet principals and featuring music by Laurie Anderson and a set by Vija Celmins

Glacial Decoy (1979)
A hallmark work and Brown's first large-scale collaboration with Robert Rauschenberg

Planes (1968)
Choreographed and designed by Brown, a marvelously vertical dance last seen in New York in 1981
