*Don‘t miss this unique opportunity* to explore *Trio A*.

Come find out what can be learned today from Yvonne Rainer’s 1966
influential work Trio A.

Fifty years later, the impact of Rainer’s revolutionary ideas and work is
still evident in the current choreographic scene

*Trio A workshop will be led by a most wonderful teacher, Pat Catterson*, who
performed *Trio A* in 1969, first taught the dance for Rainer in 1971, and
has assisted and danced for Rainer since 1999, touring nationally and
internationally. She has said “that learning this dance is the best way to
understand the major aesthetic shift it represented.”

*Pat Catterson* has written about her experiences seeing, learning,
performing and teaching TRIO A in her essay “I Promised Myself I Would
Never Let It Leave My Body’s Memory” published in the Winter 2009 issue of
Dance Research Journal. Most recently she set early Rainer works on the
Stephen Petronio Company for his Bloodlines Project, for the exhibit Yvonne
Rainer: Dance Works at Raven Row Gallery in London and performed these and
other works herself in Boris Charmatz’ Twenty dancers for the XX Century at
the Tate Modern. She also has her own notable choreographic career, having
made 108 works. She has received numerable grants and commissions,
including a 2011 Award from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, and
multiple Choreography Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts,
the CAPS Grants and the Harkness Foundation, as well as a Fulbright
Commission. Ms Catterson’s parents were a ballroom dancing team and her
paternal grandfather a Vaudevillian tap dancer. A dedicated educator, she
has been on the faculties at Sarah Lawrence College, UCLA, the Juilliard
School, and the Merce Cunningham Studio, among many others. She has been a
guest artist all over the US and in Europe and for twenty years she taught
her own tap classes in NYC. Her writing has also been published in Ballet
Review, JOPERD, Attitude Magazine, Dance Magazine Online, and the Getty
Iris. She earned her BA in psychology and philosophy from Northwestern
University and her MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts from Goddard College. This
past summer she taught a workshop seminar in the Kalamata Dance Festival in
Greece around her latest work NOW, an installation/performance/event that
paired her NYC dancers with dancers in nine other countries via Skype
