See me [sic] has the feel of a solitary quest, with Brown facing a deep upstage void and relying on her own fine-tuned dancing wits.”
-Lisa Kraus, Dance Magazine

If you couldn’t see me is Brown’s solo collaboration with Robert Rauschenberg, whose costume design and sound score contribute to the piece’s seductive beauty. The soloist dances with her back to the audience and, restricted from showing her face, must rely on the suppleness of her torso and limbs for personal expression.
