Trisha Brown Dance Company: Roof Piece

The Trisha Brown Dance Company recreates Roof Piece on the 40th anniversary of its debut. In this work, dancers stationed on rooftops mimic each other in an improvised and mutable series of movements. The piece will be recreated on rooftops surrounding the southern end of the High Line, so that park visitors will be encircled by the performance as it unfolds.
