This performance is funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Louisiana State Arts Council.
The presentation of MÖNSTER OUTSIDE was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Trisha Brown (1936–2017) was one of the most acclaimed and influential choreographers and dancers of our time; her groundbreaking work forever changed the landscape of art.

A student of Anna Halprin, Brown participated in the choreographic composition workshops taught by Robert Dunn—from which Judson Dance Theater was born—greatly contributing to the fervor of inter-disciplinary creativity that defined 1960s New York. Expanding the physical behaviors that qualified as dance, she discovered the extraordinary in the everyday, and brought tasks, games, natural movement and improvisation into the making of choreography. Brown has described herself as “a bricklayer with a sense of humor.”

Today the Trisha Brown Dance Company continues to perpetuate Brown’s legacy through its Trisha Brown: In Plain Site initiative. The Company draws on Brown’s model for reinvigorating her choreography, re-siting works in relation to new contexts that include outdoor sites and museum settings, as well as theaters. 

At the CAC, the company will animate the entire building, from the The Helis Foundation First Floor Galleries, through the CAC Theater and into the warehouses with works spanning several decades from the 1970s to the 2000s.
