For all Trisha Brown lovers

"A real insight into the early development of one of the world's greatest living choreographers.There are 18 of Trisha Brown's early pieces here. Some are recordings from around the time of the original performance, others are later recordings from the 1990s. These pieces are very different from the large-scale theatrical dances Brown has presented since she set up her company. There are dancers walking down buildings and across walls, dancers signalling from rooftops, and several versions Trisha Brown's accumulation pieces. By the time we get to the last piece (Watermotor, 1979), we are starting to see the complex, fluid movement that charaterises later classic pieces such as Set and Reset. The only slight disappointment in this selection is Spanish Dance. I have seen the TB Company do this two or three times, and it is wonderfully funny. The version on here seems to be a student performance, and the dancers don't know quite what to do with the piece."
