U.S. PREMIERE. White Bird Uncaged (formerly White Bird/ PSU Dance Series) was launched in 2000 with Trisha Brown, the most widely acclaimed artist of the postmodern era, and it is her revolutionary genius that truly inspires this series. After a 10-year absence, the Trisha Brown Dance Company will return with Trisha Brown’s brilliantly inventive work, featuring the U.S premiere of her newest creation, based on her fascination with sculpture and calligraphy.




The presentation of Trisha Brown's "Toss My Arms...." was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and additional funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. White Bird's presentation of Trisha Brown Dance Company is supported by WESTAF and the National Endowment for the Arts.
