In 1962, she co-founded the avant-garde Judson Dance Theater and eight years later formed the Trisha Brown Company, which was based in New York. Among her early groundbreaking works were the gravity-defying Man Walking Down the Side of a Building and the still popular Set and Reset, featuring costumes and set design by frequent collaborator, Robert Rauschenberg. In 1998, she choreographed her first opera, Monteverdi’s Orfeo. Trisha Brown’s transformative creations included I love my robots and L’Amour au théâtre. She presented a mix of new and older works at the Chaillot theatre in Paris in October in 2011. The first woman choreographer to receive the coveted MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, the current Dance Mentor (2010-2011) was also a highly regarded visual artist. She was made a Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government in 2004.
