Theater veteran and dance legend Mikhail Baryshnikov will perform as part of a special benefit program for BAC Flicks: Mondays With Merce on October 4, according to the New York Times.

The new monthly film series, which will run through December 31, 2011, is a collaboration between the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and Baryshnikov Arts Center, and is intended to educate audiences about Cunningham's legacy and creative process.

The October 4 event will also include a performance from the Cunningham company, with music from John Cage's "Song Books" performed by Joan La Barbara and John Kelly. There will also be a screening of Charles Atlas' film With Merce.
