Work by choreographers Lucinda Childs, Bill T. Jones, Susan Marshall, Jon Kinzel, and Faye Driscoll and musicians David Eggar, Geoff Gersh, and Kotchy will be presented in We Give Ourselves Away at Every Moment: An EVENT for Merce on July 26 alongside the Hudson River at the Esplanade Plaza in Battery Park City. This free event is part of The River to River Festival.

The tribute coincides with the first anniversary of Cunningham's death and the performance of his final work as part of the 2009 River to River Festival. The production will include new dances created especially for the occasion as well as pre-existing work in the mode of Cunningham's trademark Events, in which the choreographer repurposed pieces from his repertoire for specific performances.
