"Free"  Event — Trisha Brown Dance Company

Man Walking Down the Side of a Building — 

Friday, April 5, 2013 at 6:00 p.m.Broad Art Center Amelia Rudolph, choreographer, performer and founder/artistic director of Oakland-based BANDALOOP will perform the piece for CAP UCLA’s presentation. The movement entails a dancer—geared with specialized rigging—to simply walk face forward over the edge of a building and stroll down its side on the horizontal plane. The audience will gather at the foot of the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Center (home of UCLA’s School of the Arts and Architecture) near Richard Serra’s 2006 sculpture "T.E.U.C.L.A." (Torqued Ellipse UCLA). 


“Man Walking Down the Side of a Building” is one of Trisha Brown’s most fascinating works, first conceived by Brown and performed by Joseph Schlichter in 1970. Experience this unique work immediately before Royce Hall opens for the Trisha Brown Dance Company: Program A, featuring four acclaimed proscenium choreographies from the dance icon.
