Candoco. Set and Reset

American postmodern choreographer Trisha Brown choreographed her signature work Set and Reset in 1983, it has been re-staged as part of Candoco’s celebrations to mark turning 20. Former Trisha Brown Dance Company member Abigail Yager taught the dancers of Candoco Dance Company sequences from the original abstract choreography and then led them in improvisation with the same instuctions that Trisha Brown gave in the 1983 version. “Keep it simple, act on instinct, stay on the edge, work with visibility and invisibility, and get in line.”
