On Stephen Petronio at the Joyce, Trisha Brown, Merce Cunninghamhttp://www.thirteen.org/sundayarts/blog/are-we-in-a-platinum-age-of-dance/1171/
Trisha Brown, another all-star modern choreographer, presented a program at DTW in March. Her rigorous structure was at its most challenging in For MG: The Movie (1991), with its relentless accumulations, repeating sections, and sheer ambition. Brown’s work is technically challenging as well, but there’s a warmth and humanity manifested in the dancers’ contact and interpersonal exchanges. (In Cunningham, they interact more as scientific analysis than stemming from emotion.) A Brown classic, Foray Forêt (1990), was also performed, with the brain teasingly clever use of a marching band in the lobby, plus the solo Water Motor (1978, danced by Neal Beasley), showing a rarer sharpness and ferocity.
