For MG: The Movie, Foray Forêt, and Watermotor
“[For MG: The Movie] makes me feel like I’m not simply seeing and hearing the dance, but remembering it.” – The Village Voice
The company makes its debut at Dance Theater Workshop with two pieces from Trisha Brown’s Back to Zero Cycle, the revival of For MG: The Movie which she describes as “a return to simpler forms” and Foray Forêt, (1990), the last of a series of four works created in collaboration with Robert Rauschenberg. The piece features original visual design and costumes by Rauschenberg as well as a live traditional marching band. Completing the program is Watermotor (1978), a solo dance to be performed by Neal Beasley, the first time this piece has been danced by anyone other than Brown.
