Repertoire and creation, re-enactment and reconstruction: the approach to the archive in contemporary dance and performance just as much as the question of the specifics of bodily knowledge and thought are the starting points that accompany the curatorial work at the Tanzquartier Wien. In this context, the works of the Trisha Brown Dance Company, founded in 1970, are among the most exciting contemporary witnesses.
In cooperation with Impulstanz, the Tanzquartier Wien presents the New York company with a three-part guest performance. A particular feature of the repertoire programme is on the formative cooperation between Trisha Brown and the fine artist and painter Robert Rauschenberg.

Foray Forêt
(1990) begins the evening - a collaboration with Robert Rauschenberg, who designed the costumes and the open stage space for this work. You can see us, created in 1995, was danced in the original version by Trisha Brown and Bill T. Jones, and then in 1996 with Mikhail Baryshnikov, and is the duet version of If you couldn\'t see me (1994). With the two dancers\' bodies or gazes never directly coming into contact with one another, this work fascinates through its gripping exploration of proximity and distance. In Set and Reset, created in 1983, a quite specific movement quality develops to the driving music of Laurie Anderson. With virtuosity, the flowing energy and the impulse of the bodies combine with geometric space and view structures.

A cooperation between ImPulsTanz and Tanzquartier Wien.
