PARTS@WORK#2: TUE-WED-THUR 12-13-14 DECEMBER, 2023 - 20h
Showing of Trisha Brown’s Set and Reset/Reset, re-created and interpreted by the 40 Training students.
During a four-week intensive workshop, the students of the 2nd year Bachelor Training program worked with Diane Madden, Kathleen Fisher and Samuel Wentz on ‘Set and Reset/Reset', based on a choreography of Trisha Brown that premièred in 1983 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (New York) which went on to transform dance history.
Training Tutor and teacher Diane Madden was part of the original cast in 1983.
In the TBDC repertory workshop, the dancers learn original movement sequences from Set and Reset and improvise with the material, guided by the same compositional rules devised by Brown and the dancers. Working closely with one another and informed by skills practiced in technique courses, the dancers shape ensemble improvisations into choreography, generating a unique Set and Reset/Reset. Here, as with Brown’s Company, the dancers are an integral part of both the creative process and the end result.
“The seductively fluid quality of the movement in this Trisha Brown masterpiece, juxtaposed with the unpredictable geometric style has become the hallmark of Ms. Brown’s work. Performed to a driving score by Laurie Anderson, the exploration of visibility and invisibility is reflected in the translucent costumes and set by Robert Rauschenberg”(© Trisha Brown Dance Company)
Each evening you will see four different versions of Set and Reset/Reset, from 4 casts of 6-7 students per version. In order to see all the students at work, you can combine any two of the evenings.
