For MG: The Movie

Trisha Brown (1991)

An abstract piece from the New York choreographer, built on the idea of performance itself and what it means to perform, For MG: The Movie is an absorbing piece, drawing the audience into the movements with a hypnotic, almost magnetic force. 


Choreography: Trisha Brown
Music: Alvin Curran 

What the press said

“Movement with hypnotic grace… Stunningly beautiful”
The Daily Telegraph

"Mesmerising meditation on perceptions of space, time and action”
The Herald 

“Trisha Brown is in a world all of her own”
Sunday Express 

“A beautifully subtle example of stripped down minimalism”
Independent on Sunday

“It is to Scottish Ballet’s credit that they tackled this difficult, rarely seen piece with the gusto and precision it deserves… it provided a smoky oasis built by the contradictory states of meditation and raw power.”
