Choreographer and dancer Judith Sânchez Ruíz, former member of Trisha Brown Dance Company (2006-2009), has been teaching a workshop on one of Trisha Brown’s masterpieces, the seminal work “Set and Reset” (1983). The piece is based on technique and rules to create structure. A physical state of research, muscle memory, individual venture transformed into a larger group endeavour, developing partnering ideas, body articulation, relationship with time, familiarity, choreographic choices made from vocabulary. A group of advanced dancers has learned the repertoire phrases, practised them in an improvisational setting and reset them. The results, as well as an introduction to the piece by Judith Sanchez will be presented.
