Trisha Brown Dance Company coming to L.A. for retrospective

Modern-dance choreographer Trisha Brown, who announced her retirement from creating new work last month, will bring her renowned company to Los Angeles for a series of performances at multiple venues, including the Getty Museum and the Hammer Museum, starting in late March.

"Trisha Brown Dance Company: The Retrospective Project" is organized by the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA. 

The New York dance company will begin on March 30 with Brown's installation work "Floor of the Forest," with performances several times daily on Thursdays through Sundays in the Hammer Museum courtyard. The performances will be free and open to the public, and will run through April 21.

At the Getty Center in Brentwood, the company will perform Brown's 1973 seminal work "Roof Piece" on April 6. The performance will also be free to the public. 

Brown, 76, is widely regarded as one of the leading modern-dance choreographers. In December, Brown said that she is retiring from making new work, though she stays on as the company's founding artistic director and choreographer. The group is performing Brown's final new pieces this week at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

In L.A., the company will also present some ticketed events: Brown’s "Astral Converted," which will be performed April 4 at 8 p.m. at the Sunset Canyon Amphitheatre at UCLA; "Set and Reset," on April 5 at 8 p.m. at Royce Hall; and "Les Yeux et l'ame," along with other works, on April 7 at 2 p.m at Royce Hall.

Ticket prices for these events range from $10 to $55.

Brown's company last performed in the L.A. area in 2011 at the Valley Performing Arts Center in Northridge.
