Sololos is one of the purest expressions of Trisha Brown’s love affair with choreographic structure. Created in 1976, it is a study of causality - cause and effect, as well as logical processes, properties, variables and facts in which dancers respond to instructions called to them from a dancer offstage. The piece begins in simple unison, quickly unravels into visual complexity, then re-ravels itself back to its beginning prompted by instructions given by the caller. Governed by strict adherence to a set of rules and requirements, it exists in endless permutation as a function of these improvised calls. The vocabulary is entirely fixed, yet the form is composed in the moment.

MYSTERIOUS INFORMAL SHOWING
Come and see an INFORMAL showing on MAY 12TH at 7:30 in Sullivant Theatre. There will be improvisation, choreographed pieces, works in progress, and live music! It will be very informal but a great show so come and enjoy yourself to a night of free art! There will be lots of baked goods and discussion of our work after the show!
