Spring Dances 2022 features works by choreographers Trisha Brown, Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, and Aszure Barton, performed by Juilliard dancers from the classes of 2022, 2023, and 2024. Opening the program is Brown’s Set and Reset/Reset–a contemporary response to Brown’s own iconic 1983 work Set and Reset. The dancers who are performing it were tasked with learning Brown’s original phrases and resetting the structure of the work, making it unique to Juilliard in 2022.
Shelter by Jawole Willa Jo Zollar (1988) follows. Premiered by Urban Bush Women, Shelter challenges the dancers to work as a collective to share stories of displacement and faith in oneself to push forward. return to patience (2015) by Aszure Barton closes the program.
return to patience (which premiered as part of Juilliard’s New Dances in 2015), set to music composed by another trailblazing artist, composer and Juilliard Creative Associate Caroline Shaw.
