Families will experiment with sending and receiving movements to one another, exploring Trisha Brown's particular style with three of Trisha Brown Dance Company's own dancers. After learning movements from Brown's work, families are invited to return at 5:00 PM to watch Roof Piece performed by Trisha Brown Dance Company on surrounding buildings.

Trisha Brown Dance Company will lead three Roof Dance Relays:
10:00 - 10:40 AM
10:40 AM - 11:20 AM
11:20 AM - Noon

Saturday Play takes place weekly throughout the summer. The Children's Workyard Kit is also available during Saturday Play, where children can build their own work with real lumber planks, simple tools, and natural materials.
