TBDC’s Next Reconstruction: Son of Gone Fishin’ (1981)
We're excited to announce the return of Son of Gone Fishin' (1981) for TBDC's 2013-14 Season! This is the first of several reconstructions to come, part of our initiative to bring back long-unseen but significant Trisha Brown works.

The newly reconstructed Son of Gone Fishin' will be presented during TBDC's next home season, at New York Live Arts in April 2014. We need your support to make this happen!

"The structure of the dance is the most rigorous of all my works."
