Babette Mangolte and the New York Avant-Garde

Soon after relocating to New York, Mangolte started documenting the city’s vibrant scene of contemporary dance, avant-garde theatre, and performance art. This film features one of the leading postmodern dancers and choreographers, Trisha Brown, in her solo that we see twice, in normal speed and in slow motion. 

I knew that Trisha could dance the solo twice in one day maybe three times but no more, so in filming it, I had no room for lengthy rehearsal of the dance to practice my camera work. I had to do well the first time. I decided that I would learn the dance and have it so much in my head and brain that I would follow the dance with the film camera with no effort on the day of the shooting. (BM)
