Trisha Brown’s “Roof Piece” scales the J. Paul Getty Museum

Architecture & Design · Dance

Since its debut on the rooftops of New York’s SoHo in 1971, the legendary site-specific work has been remounted based on photographic documentation by photographer Babette Mangolte. In 2011, “Roof Piece” unfurled above New York City’s High Line. This past Saturday April 6, Trisha Brown dancers, donning fire-red costumes, scaled the iconic Getty Museum above the 405 Freeway to meld human form to architecture.

The event was co-produced by the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA and the Getty.
