WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Merce Cunningham Dance Company's first Joyce season, taking place in 1984, featured a ten?day series of Cunningham's signature Events, in which Cunningham and his dancers performed to live music by company musicians John Cage, Takehisa Kisugi, and David Tudor. For this, its final Joyce season before disbanding in December 2011 at the end of its two?year Legacy Tour, the company will give audiences the extraordinary opportunity to see Cunningham's choreography performed by the final group of dancers he personally trained in a repertory program that has not been seen in New York for decades. This profoundly moving engagement will include two Cunningham masterworks -- CRWDSPCR and Quartet, and will conclude with Antic Meet, an iconic piece, not seen since 1969, that captures the exuberant and collaborative spirit that existed between the choreographer and Robert Rauschenberg.
