Loose Association : Emmanuelle Huynh and Trisha Brown


Why put forward a parallel between Trisha Brown and Emmanuelle Huynh? What kind of reduction will such a comparison lead to? Though looking at their respective work on release techniques enables us to trace common potentialities of movement and imagination, this in no way suffices to define the scope of an aesthetic, or even to wholly describe a movement style. From there, the paths these two artists have taken are as diverse as their gestural imaginations allow. Is it even possible to define, once and for all, Brown’s style? The choreographer accustomed us throughout her career to move along a series of cycles that punctuated the evolution of her questionings. Therefore, we must instead consider her work as manifold form, if not of heterogeneity then of becoming, and irreducible to any rapid synthesis. But isn’t this the very reason that Brown has had an influence that is so difficult to grasp? An influence that can express itself on many levels, and can concern only a moment or an aspect of Brown’s work.
