Diane Madden US

Since 1980, Diane Madden has danced, directed, taught, studied and reconstructed Trisha Brown’s work.

She originated many roles in Brown’s work, and was awarded a New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award for Astral Convertible (1989). In 2012 NYC’s Movement Research honored her, along with the original cast, for Brown’s Set and Reset (1983), collaboration with Rauschenberg and Laurie Anderson.

Madden was Company Rehearsal Director from 1984-2000 then taught and directed special projects for the Company before serving again as Rehearsal Director from 2010 until 2013, when she was named Associate Artistic Director.

In 2019 she moved to Brussels to fulfill P.A.R.T.S. teaching and tutor positions and continues to serve the Trisha Brown Company as Artistic Consultant.

In addition to her own performance work in solo and collaborative improvisational forms, Madden has enjoyed working with choreographers Jerome Bel, Lance Gries, Juliette Mapp, Polly Motley, Vicky Shick and Cathy Weis.

She is greatly influenced by her study and practice of Aikido with Fuminori Onuma and very excited to begin a two year training with Anja Röttgerkamp in Fascia Therapy.
