Thursday, Feb 16 at Northrop

Merce Cunningham, the revolutionary American choreographer who ranks among the foremost figures of artistic modernism, will be the subject of a major Walker Art Center exhibition in 2017. Northrop joins the Walker in celebrating the Cunningham legacy with two of his groundbreaking dance works performed by France’s acclaimed CCN-Ballet de Lorraine. In his dramatic Fabrications, co-commissioned by Walker Art Center and premiered 30 years ago at Northrop, Cunningham plays with a random combination of 64 movement patterns, in a sly reference to the I Ching. Sounddance, a Cunningham favorite, presents a world of “organized chaos,” performed to a thundering electronic score by David Tudor. The program also features Devoted, a new contemporary ballet by the young French choreographic duo Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud, with a score by Philip Glass.

In compliment to the ballet, Northrop will present a free film screening of Cage/Cunningham on Tuesday, Feb 7 in the Best Buy Theater. This film documents the 50 year collaboration between composer John Cage and choreographer Merce Cunningham. More info.
