Deborah Jowitt sums up Trisha Brown’s choreography and dancing with one simple phrase: "organized delirium of motion," as far as I could see from my seat in the Joyce last week. And I had a very good view. I mean, I appreciate the kinesthetic qualities in Brown's work AND the fact that Brown is a pioneer in her field, but I'm afraid it's not my cup of tea, as they say in England. I felt a bit like I was watching puppets being manipulated by their handcrafter. The dancers looked like clones of Brown's movements. I missed some show of emotion or sign of individuality. Sure, the dancer's movements, the colors of their costumes and the phrases they used in the music set them apart, but that was all. Men looked like women and women looked like me—the dancers appeared genderless. I have to admit I didn't get to see Newark though. <P>I won’t let this stop me from seeing more of Trisha Brown’s performances "live" but I can’t count myself as one of her fans. The beautiful thing is about modern dance though: there’s room out there for everyone!<BR><P>------------------<BR>[This message has been edited by Jennifer]<BR>

You know, in some way, this reminds me of Merce as well...

Azlan, I agree. Although I recognize Merce's incredible contribution to dance: his unique approach to choreography and separation of dance and music, it's just not my "cup of tea". He has spawned a whole "school" of dance, and indeed strongly influenced the Judson Church group, if not directly, certainly indirectly. I seem to remember that John Cage was the teacher of the first few classes of the Judson group, then I believe Bob Dunn took over. ANYWAY, the dancers are beautiful, the choreography certainly surprising and unpredictable, but it just doesnt' speak to me, somehow. To each his own!!
