Trisha Brown Dance Company Summer Intensive: July 7-25, 2014
Gibney Dance Center


The 2014 Summer Intensive is a unique opportunity for advanced students and professionals to inhabit Trisha Brown’s creative principles. Through technique, repertory, improvisation and composition, TBDC alumni will guide students’ investigations of the movement vocabulary and choreographic tools of Brown’s work. By engaging with Brown's rich body of multidisciplinary work, the Intensive will help dancers accomplish individual creative goals, develop movement phrases and uncover new compositional tools.
