About Edinburgh International Festival: Trisha Brown: In Plain Site

Trisha Brown: In Plain Site reconceives some of the US choreographer’s most striking short dance pieces in dynamic relationships with the enchanting landscape of Jupiter Artland — on floating rafts in Charles Jencks’ lakes, in its rich woodlands and sculpted landforms.

Trisha Brown (1936—2017) was a global figure in dance, restlessly experimental and ceaselessly striving for an original language of movement. Trisha Brown Dance Company returns to its site- specific roots, blending intellectual rigour, physical virtuosity and tongue-in-cheek humour to create beautiful, often surprising works of art across outdoor spaces.

West Lothian’s Jupiter Artland is a world- recognised contemporary sculpture park and art gallery based around Jacobean manor Bonnington House, featuring permanent work by artists including Andy Goldsworthy, Antony Gormley, Cornelia Parker and Anish Kapoor.

Alongside the performances, Jupiter Artland presents a gallery exhibition of Trisha Brown’s film archive throughout August.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Trisha Brown: In Plain Site are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
