AboutAccumulation (1971) by Trisha Brown
Theo Clinkard performs an iconic signature work by the pioneering American choreographer Trisha Brown, widely regarded as the most acclaimed choreographer to emerge from the postmodern era. This witty solo is based on the simple device of adding one gesture to another, one at a time, and repeating the growing phrase with each new movement.

Ordinary Courage by Theo Clinkard
Ordinary Courage examines the nature of loss and the capacity for movement and touch to communicate when words are inadequate. Clinkard completes an international seven-strong cast in this rousing and eloquent work that launched his company in 2012. Set to a haunting score by Alan Stones that incorporates Scarlatti and Bach, performed live by the celebrated concert pianist Cliodna Shanahan, Ordinary Courage is staged beneath a startling light box installation, lit by Zerlina Hughes.
Presented by The Greenwich Dance and Trinity Laban Partnership.
