Aberdeen, Washington native Trisha Brown put this dance performance together. Trisha Brown, of Trisha Brown Dance Company, is a renowned choreographer and repeat guest Dance instructor at Western. The Trisha Brown Company focuses on post-modern dance.

Use the activities below to think about and enhance your understanding of this work when you watch the video.


  1. How do the dancers interact with each other on stage?
  2. Can you draw some lines and shapes that create similar patterns?
  3. Can you practice moving your legs in one direction and then moving your arms in the opposite direction?
    • This helps dancers find balance in between these lines of opposition, we can create rebound and power from this.
  4. Share your moves with your family and challenge them to move their body in this way!

Bonus points for sharing your own dancing on the Whatcom Arts Project Facebook page with us! Post a video and share in the fun!

Staying together while apart

Bellingham and Whatcom County deeply value togetherness. Although we want everyone to be safe at home (for now), we believe in staying connected during this time of being apart.

To achieve that goal, more than 30 performing and visual arts organizations have collaborated to form an online campaign to inform, entertain, educate, inspire, support, promote, and uplift each other daily and remain socially close while physically distanced.

Learn with us, dance with us, sing with us, be creative with us, all in the comfort of your home. See our daily content offering performances, classes, narratives, interactive tours and other arts experiences all online.
