Cunningham brings his company back to London for a season of six one-off performances whose choreography, score and set design all change radically from show to show.

Serendipity has always been one of the ruling gods in Merce Cunningham's dance universe, especially when it comes to his staging of events.

Soaring with the cloud-leapers
by ISMENE BROWN for the Daily Telegraph

Chance, if anything, increased my enjoyment, because, having had the bad luck to arrive just too late to take my stalls seat, I had to watch from the back of the circle. What serendipity. High and wide is where reception is clearest of Cunningham's wonderful possession of three-dimensional space, his injections of strict line and delicate, gravity-less motion over a floor that appears to be nothing less than a field of light, in which the dancers have a supra-human, bounding quality, like cloud-leapers.

Cunningham's Mystical, Teeming Circle
by NANCY DALVA for the New York Times

A trip uninterrupted by intermission, "Ocean" finds Mr. Cunningham just off stage, keeping a watchful eye on the continuous action and on the clock, and taking notes to give to the 15 dancers later. (You'll be able to spot him someplace at ground level, probably near the electronic musical gear. He's the one who looks like a wizard, and maybe is a wizard.)

Diving Into a Tide of Creative Energy
by JACK ANDERSON for the New York Times

"Ocean" is a work dance lovers might long to see often, for this piece for 14 dancers is a gorgeous spectacle, conceptually complex yet sensuously gratifying. It was the final production conceived by Mr. Cunningham and John Cage, the composer who was his longtime collaborator.

Sea Life and Strange Fruit
A fertile ocean floods the city, and green Massachusetts plays host to an urban legend
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Vioce

Seeing Ocean after nine years, I notice the stillnesses more — the way some dancers freeze for long periods, as if marooned by musical tides, while others move, alert and quick-footed. New arrivals stir action; Jonah Bokaer's big, bent-legged jumps act like a depth charge to set others flying. I also notice how often the dancers look up; how often they lift their arms in big, open curves; how flatly they balance tilted, like spread sails.
