What Wendy's Watching: Trisha Brown Works You Might Not Know

Trisha Brown, the high priestess of postmodern dance, is hugely influential. Her slippery movement style and her brainy structures are emulated by choreographers all over the United States and Europe. I am an alum of her company, and when she died last March, I gathered my thoughts and memories to write this farewell.


Luckily, the Trisha Brown Dance Company is still going full steam ahead. From Dec. 12 to 17 it comes to New York City's Joyce Theater with three rarely seen works: Groove and Countermove (2000), to music by jazz composer Dave Douglas; L'Amour au théâtre (2009), based on a baroque opera by Rameau; and Geometry of Quiet (2002), with music by Salvatore Sciarrino.

Built with the intention to break barriers and bend the rules, CalArts' interdisciplinary curriculum ensures that students take classes that cover an entire spectrum of artistic approaches. The result? A dance program that gives you much more than just dance.

Last week, Dance Magazine caught up with Kevin Whitmire, assistant director of admission for CalArts School of Dance, and recent alum Kevin Zambrano for the inside scoop on how an interdisciplinary curriculum can make you a stronger artist.
