Trio A was choreographed during the incredible creative vitality and formal radicalism of the Judson Church period in NYC from 1961-70. Created in 1965 over 180 consecutive days in the studio, it is considered to be the seminal work of the post-modern dance period. Its then radical form, movement vocabulary and performance approach forever changed the thinking about what could be defined as a dance, who could be a dancer, and the dancer’s relationship to performance.
