MERCE CUNNINGHAM’S BIPED AND BEACH BIRDS
Under the direction of former Cunningham dancer Robert Swinston, France’s National Center for Contemporary Dance/Angers will perform two masterworks by the legendary Merce Cunningham. In Biped the animate and inanimate meet through a fascinating intersection of enthralling choreography and motion-capture technology. In Beach Birds, dancers move with the fluidity of flocks of birds. This is a one-in-a lifetime opportunity to witness the genius of Merce.
