Trisha Brown even works hard at interviews
Here's my feature for Newsday on the lovely pomo choreographer Trisha Brown. The focus is on nature in her life and work. (Newsday has become very Long Island-focused, and Brown has a cottage in the woods on the island, so it was a natural direction to take.) She's one of those interview subjects you want to kiss afterwards, because she keeps handing you these great quotes. In her case, I could feel her working to make her language delicious. Hope you enjoy.
And here's an interview from last week with Brown I found on WNYC's Sound Check.
And here's the esteemed Claudia La Rocco's article in the Sunday Times on Brown's graceful retirement.
Did I mention the occasion for the Brownomania? The company's show at the Joyce Theater in Manhattan this week.
Okay, see you at the end of the week.
