Modern Program will be taking their next field trip this April. I'm sharing this information in hopes that community even outside of dance will embrace the performing arts.

PYGMALION and mixed rep
Friday, April 8
8 p.m. • Langford Auditorium
Defining “cutting edge” since her first work at New York’s Judson Dance Theater 40 years ago, Trisha Brown’s intellectual and creative experimentation has brought her international recognition as a leader in abstract choreography. A MacArthur Genius Fellow, her company is regularly seen in landmark opera houses and theaters around the world. With a repertory ranging from solos to major evening-length works, Brown has worked with many renowned visual artists. In celebration of the Company’s 40th Anniversary, Great Performances is honored to present Pygmalion, a story of love and magic based on Jean Philippe Rameau’s opera (1748) as originally told in Ovid’s Metamorphosis.
