Dear TBDC Family & Friends,
We are still celebrating our Memorial Day Weekend performances on the beautiful grounds of The Watermill Center in Water Mill, New York. Thank you to our local audiences for joining us on Long Island for this special engagement.

If you are in the Chicago area, join us on June 4 for Roof Piece (1971), which will be performed on the rooftops surrounding Art Circle Drive at the Block Museum of Art on the campus of Northwestern University. The performances are free, so join us at 12:00pm and 3:00pm, and for a post-show conversation at 4:00pm. We love performing Roof Piece and we are eager to share it with the Chicago community!

 
We turn our attention to Philadelphia where the Pennsylvania Ballet will premiere the restaging of Trisha Brown's O zlozony / O composite (2004) June 9-12. The work has been restaged by TBDC alum Neal Beasley with assistance from current dancer Tara Lorenzen and Associate Artistic Director Carolyn Lucas. This project marks the first occasion that an American ballet company will perform Trisha's work. We send warm wishes to the Pennsylvania Ballet dancers.

Our annual Summer Intensive is quickly filling! This year's program features two weeks of study. In the first week, participants will work deeply on Trisha's Newark (Niweweorce)(1987), known for its partnering and forceful dancing. In the second week, we will turn towards Trisha's improvisational and compositional strategies, looking at repertory selections from forty years of making. Visit our Education site for more information, and we hope you can join us in the studio.     
 
With gratitude,
 
Diane Madden & Carolyn Lucas
Associate Artistic Directors

Gibney Dance Center, 280 Broadway, New York City

Beginning with a warm-up to integrate the breath and full dimension of the body, movement exercises will focus on undoing places of tension and holding. Mapping the joints of the body will be emphasized to enable clear and efficient movement. The class will develop into learning a phrase of movement that encompasses quick qualitative shifts and complex points of initiation.

In the Trisha Brown: In the New Body Blog, you will find recent contributions by TBDC alum Neal Beasley. Beasley has been leading the restaging process, accompanied by TBDC dancer Tara Lorenzen and Associate Artistic Director Carolyn Lucas. Read all about the restaging process, as well a recap of the recent Nuts and Bolts discussion which included TBDC alums Lisa Kraus and Stephen Petronio, here.



Teaching O zlozony / O composite to these dancers has reminded me exactly how much trust is required in creative partnerships, perhaps nowhere quite like in the quiet of a dance studio.

TBDC'S FIRST YEAR WITH BARD COLLEGE

Over two semesters, TBDC has been leading technique and repertory classes for students at Bard College. This is one component of the College's two-year partnership with TBDC, which also included annual full-Company residencies, performances, masterclasses, and special events.

This spring, TBDC alum Leah Morrison taught selections of Trisha's work for performance in the Spring Faculty Concert, including Accumulation with Talking plus Cutbacks (1979) for four dancers, the Running Solo from For M.G.: The Movie (1991) turned into a duet, and an interpretation of Set and Reset/Reset for the full ensemble. Set and Reset/Reset uses the movement material and composition principles of Set and Reset (1983) to create a new, wholly original work while featuring the driving score by Laurie Anderson and costumes and lighting inspired by Robert Rauschenberg and Beverly Emmons' original designs.
