The first female choreographer to receive the coveted MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, Trisha Brown has been awarded several other honors including five fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and two John Simon Guggenheim Fellowships. In 1988 she was named chevalier dans l’Ordre des Arts et Lettres by the government of France. In January 2000 she was promoted to officier and in 2004, was again elevated; this time to the level of commandeur. In 2003 she received National Medal of Arts and is an Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
Trisha Brown Dance Company has presented the work of its legendary artistic director for over 40 years. Founded in 1970 when Trisha Brown branched out from the experimental Judson Dance Theater, TBDC first performed at alternative sites in Manhattan’s SoHo. Today, the Company is regularly seen in landmark opera houses from New York to Paris and London.
This program is made possible, in part, with the support of Jann Leeming & Arthur Little, The Little Family Foundation.
