In the steps of Trisha Brown
A film by Marie-hélène Rebois

Lisa Kraus, Carolyn Lucas, Ballet de l'Opéra national de Paris (Paris Opera Ballet)


Trisha Brown has transformed contemporary dance: by defying the laws of gravity, she has given dance an extraordinary fluidity, while turning it on its head in an unprecedented way… Her piece “Glacial Decoy” is now part of the Paris Opera Ballet’s repertoire. We follow Lisa Kraus and Carolyn Lucas as they teach the piece to the Opera Ballet’s dancers. Through Lisa and Carolyn’s enthusiasm and energy, the film plunges viewers into the spellbinding world of Trisha Brown’s dancing.
