MCA Cunningham Event



What is dance? How should it be experienced? Revolutionary choreographer Merce Cunningham developed his Events as a way to perform works in a space that is devoid of theatrical illusion. In this excerpt from the MCA's Event, two former members of Merce Cunningham Dance Company perform Cunningham's signature approach alongside a trio of musicians.

This MCA Stage event was performed Feb 11–12, 2017, as part of Merce Cunningham: Common Time.
