A founding member of the Judson Dance Theater along with Steve Paxton and others, Trisha Brown founded her own company in 1970. The Company first performed at the Pillow in 1980 (with Stephen Petronio, her first male dancer, in the group), and returned frequently during the 1980s and 1990s, presenting works such as Lateral Pass. Brown taught at the Pillow, and created and premiered works here over a period of more than 30 years. Work on Set and Reset was begun with support from Jacob’s Pillow through a New Works grant from the Massachusetts Council on the Arts. In 2011, Brown celebrated her company’s 40th anniversary with Pillow performances of her latest work, Les Yeux et l’âme.
