Speaking Through Movement Set and Reset

Part of the Terra Foundation for American Art Series: New Perspectives

A black and white photo captures three dancers in mid-movement. One dancer is holding another in the air, at hip height, while the third curves around them following the group's movement. All three stand on a stage wearing flowing clothes.

The panel includes Benoit Swan Pouffer, Rambert’s Artistic Director, Carolyn Lucas Associate Artistic Director of Trisha Brown Dance Company, Joel Brown dancer, singer-songwriter and is chaired by Catherine Wood.
