About this show

In Conversation With Merce aims to engage the public in theoretical, practical, and experiential approaches to examining Merce Cunningham's cultural and artistic contribution and is curated by Rashaun Mitchell, a former Merce Cunningham Dance Company dancer and a trustee of the Merce Cunningham Trust. Choreographers Moriah Evans, Mina Nishimura, and Netta Yerushalmy will each present responsive experiments that draw connections of lineage to the celebrated choreographer. Drawing on conceptual, formal, and personal affinities with Cunningham, the three distinctive choreographers converse with his simultaneous presence and absence. In addition to the three commissioned works, select pieces by Merce Cunningham will be performed by Shayla Vie Jenkins and Keith Sabado.
