Spring 2019: New York
The Merce Cunningham Centennial
The Joyce Theatre, April 17-21
The Joyce celebrates the centenary of Merce Cunningham, “one of the great iconoclasts in 20th-century art” (The New York Times), who would have turned 100 this year. Three superb companies perform masterworks from the artist’s vast repertory, each danced to live music. COMPAGNIE CNDC-ANGERS/ROBERT SWINSTON presents Suite for Five, with its quiet unmoving center; Ballet West dances the classic Summerspace, which evokes enormous landscapes filled with motion; and The Washington Ballet returns with Duets, a sophisticated and abstract work for six couples.
