TRISHA BROWN DANCE COMPANY
Floor of the Forest
Presented as part of Dance/Draw, Trisha Brown’s Floor of the Forest—part sculpture, part dance prop, part performance—features a 12 x 14-foot steel pipe frame across which ropes are tied and densely threaded with used clothing. Within the structure two dancers wend and weave, literally dressing and undressing their way through the sculpture. Each performance is subject to chance, allowing the individuality of each dancer who performs it to determine their movements, meaning no two performances are ever the same.
