Merce Cunningham is considered by many to be the world’s greatest living choreographer – the godfather of modern dance. Celebrating the company’s first ever UK tour in its forty year touring history, the company presents an EVENT unique to each host venue, creating an exceptional and original dance experience.
With music performed live by the Company Musicians, each Event combines elements from past repertory alongside new features. Choreography, commissioned by Dance Umbrella, is premiered at Sheffield Lyceum and then forms part of each venue’s Event. The Lowry audience is the first to see the new set, while at Warwick Arts Centre, the lighting designs have their first outing. At the Oxford Playhouse, the costume designs are see for the first time and at the Brighton Dome, a John Cage score, never before used for dance, is performed. It is only when the tour reaches Edinburgh that all these new elements combine to create Merce Cunningham’s latest World Premiere.
At The Lowry and Edinburgh Festival Theatre, audiences will also be treated to the 1999 masterpiece, BIPED.
“Still giving us drastically new views of human form … the quiet power of his creative heart is intoxicating” The Times
