Watch Rambert perform Trisha Brown’s Set and Reset

Trisha Brown’s major work of post-modern dance Set and Reset will be performed for the first time by the London-based dance company Rambert, who will showcase the fluid and unpredictable style of Brown's original choreography.

In Set and Reset Brown worked with a process of memorised improvisation that layered phrases and timing to create an intricate piece of choreography. Like the original production, the piece features the original music composed by Laurie Anderson, lighting design by Beverly Emmons, and the stage-set and costumes by Robert Rauschenberg, who were all key collaborators on the project. Reflecting on the piece Brown stated that Set and Reset was defined by ‘metamorphic relationships; relationships between figures both plastic and organic; about space, both physical and aural’.
