Line Up is a movement activity developed by choreographer Trisha Brown that reflects her interest in the interplay between structure and improvisation. This set uses her activity design as the basis for a movement lesson and provides a brief illustrated introduction to the work of Trisha Brown.
As a a lens into post-modern dance in the 1960s and 1970s, this set introduces a specific dance genre and serves as a jumping off point in considering how post-modern dance reflects the social, political and aesthetic milieu of that time. Line Up has continued to be used by myriad people over the years and in K-16 education as a foundational lesson in improvisational dance.
This Art Collector Set was developed through a partnership between Walker Art Center and Perpich Center for Arts Education (Dance Outreach).
