“I’ve always been attracted and tempted into nearly any situation where the final work is the result of more than one person’s doing.” – Robert Rauschenberg

Robert Rauschenberg’s six-decade career was shaped by his friendships and collaborations with avant-garde choreographers and dancers. Over extended periods, he worked with Trisha Brown, Merce Cunningham, and Paul Taylor, contributing sets, costumes, lighting design, and sound to their dances. These projects in turn focused his interest in time and motion, and helped define his approach to painting, sculpture, printmaking, and photography. In conjunction with the exhibition Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends, this performance program unites the choreography of Brown, Cunningham, and Taylor—three icons of American modern dance rarely seen side by side—in some of their most significant collaborations with Rauschenberg to explore how dance shaped his art, and vice versa.

Sunday, October 15, 7:30pm

Trisha Brown (1936-2017) was one of the most acclaimed and influential choreographers and dancers of our time; her groundbreaking work forever changed the landscape of art. A student of Anna Halprin, Brown participated in the choreographic composition workshops taught by Robert Dunn from which Judson Dance Theater was born greatly contributing to the fervor of inter-disciplinary creativity that defined 1960s New York. Expanding the physical behaviors that qualified as dance, she discovered the extraordinary in the everyday, and brought tasks, games, natural movement and improvisation into the making of choreography. Brown has described herself as a "bricklayer with a sense of humor."

Today the Trisha Brown Dance Company continues to perpetuate Brown's legacy through its Trisha Brown: In Plain Site initiative. The Company draws on Brown's model for reinvigorating her choreography, re-siting works in relation to new contexts that include outdoor sites and museum settings, as well as theaters.

At the CAC, the company will animate the entire building, from the galleries, through the Freeport Theater and into the warehouses with works spanning several decades from the 1960s to the 2000s.

Tickets start at $25 for CAC members, for more information please visit:

In planning since before Trisha Brown's death earlier this year, ArtPower is proud to present a unique iteration of In Plain Site, a site-specific work created for the UC San Diego campus by Trisha Brown Dance Company (TBDC). The company will adapt Brown's signature works around the campus, honoring her commitment to the presentation of performances in nontraditional venues, a format she helped pioneer.

Brown was an iconic American choreographer and cofounder of postmodern dance. She formed TBDC in 1970, and the company has toured her work throughout the world. She was a recipient of awards from the MacArthur Foundation, U.S. Artists, the Dorothy & Lillian Gish Prize, and the National Medal of the Arts, among many others.

Brown engaged collaborators who are themselves leaders in music, theater, and the visual arts, including visual artists Robert Rauschenberg, Donald Judd, and Elizabeth Murray, and musicians Laurie Anderson, John Cage, and Alvin Curran, just to name a few. With these partners, she created exceptionally varied works that have been staples in the dance world for decades.
