This one-week workshop is devoted to experiencing Trisha Brown's aesthetic in the fullest physical sense. The class will build organically with technical work and movement explorations to support and flow into dancing the repertory. 

Class begins with a warm-up emphasizing the coordination of alignment, breath, and weight to bring space, direction, and flow of energy through the joints.  Full-bodied phrase work from Trisha Brown's choreography will draw on internal and external geometries (both imagined and real), challenging students to take risks and broaden their perception of their dancing.
