Bryn Mawr College’s performing arts series has been presenting innovative works in the Philadelphia area since 1984. With Center support, Bryn Mawr has showcased the choreography of contemporary artists such as John Jasperse, Urban Bush Women, and Susan Rethorst, as well as international groups such as the Khmer Arts Ensemble and Compagnie Jant-Bi. In 2014, Bryn Mawr received Center funding to present Trisha Brown: In the New Body, a retrospective of selected dances by Brown, an internationally known leader of postmodernism whose work had rarely been seen in Philadelphia. A 2017 Performance project grant supports Bryn Mawr’s presentation of several immersive installation works by Lebanese artist Tania El Khoury.
