Spring activities for the Centennial, which continues through all of 2019, include a wide range of performances, film screenings, discussions, education initiatives, community programming, and new works by other artists in conversation with Merce Cunningham’s work.
On April 16, 2019, which would have been the legendary choreographer’s 100th birthday, Night of 100 Solos: A Centennial Event, the largest Cunningham Event ever staged, will take place at the Barbican (London), BAM (New York City), and CAP UCLA (Los Angeles).
Please see the Calendar on the Merce Cunningham Trust website for the most up-to-date schedule.
Today the Merce Cunningham Trust announces programming for the Spring 2019 season of the worldwide Merce Cunningham Centennial, which unites artists, companies, and cultural and educational institutions in a multifaceted display and celebration of Cunningham’s vital impact. The Merce Cunningham Centennial, launched this past fall and continuing throughout all of 2019, celebrates the legacy of one of the most influential choreographers of our time with events reaching from Los Angeles to Havana to New Plymouth, New Zealand. The Centennial’s breadth of activities and diversity of participating partners demonstrate the profound, enduring resonance of the choreographer’s work and his approach to how the body moves in time and space.
