 "In all the equipment pieces, the choreographic decisions, time, place, order of movements, kinds of movements, the nature of the sounds are strictly governed by the choice of the equipment. The movement and language are generated in terms of the most economical use of the equipment. It is hard to imagine anyone choosing or inventing those particular movements or that language outside of the chosen equipment situation"   Trisha Brown, 1972
