TRISHA BROWN

Wednesday-Saturday: Trisha Brown founded her company in 1970 in New York after making a name for herself as one of the pioneers in postmodern dance from the boundary-breaking Judson Dance Theater collaborative. Now Brown’s internationally recognized troupe is disbanding, and its farewell tour, “Proscenium Works 1979-2011,” will make a stop at Walker Art Center this week. The program is a rich showcase of Brown’s flair for transforming pedestrian movement into something entirely unexpected; it also highlights her collaborations with some of the 20th century’s most influential artists. On tap: 1989’s “Astral Convertible” (created with John Cage and Robert Rauschenberg), “Set and Reset” (music by Laurie Anderson with visual design by Rauschenberg), 2011’s wittily named “I’m going to toss my arms — if you catch them they’re yours” (pictured, with live music by Alvin Curran) and more. (8 p.m. Wed.-Sat. $45. Walker Art Center, 1750 Hennepin Av. S., Mpls. 612-375-7600 or walkerart.org.)
