Merce Cunningham centennial

Recommended Posts

I thought we had a dedicated thread for this already, but perhaps not [apparently not, so I've moved the above post in here too], so:

No longer live, but this is still currently available -  I don't know for how long. https://www.mercecunningham.org/activities/night-of-100-solos/

 

Rather an eccentric  90 minutes,  I thought, more to do with stasis than the sort of flowing ballet movement I prefer.  I also believe dance works best with recognisable music, rather than random scratchy noises !  The work gave little expression of human emotion or  interaction, making it difficult to feel empathy.  

 

I most enjoyed seeing the pink  RB team, particularly Ms Hayward's umbrella dance and longer solo (yes, she is finally back!) ,  the striking Ms Stix-Brunell, and the powerful, adept, and  up-and-coming Mr Sissens.

Jonathan Goddard was terrific. In yellow if you are catching up on the live stream.
