Merce Cunningham Centennial

Merce Cunningham Centennial

Presented by Mondavi Center, UC Davis at Mondavi Center - Jackson Hall

Honoring what would have been Merce Cunningham’s 100th birthday, CNDC d’Angers and Artistic Director Robert Swinston bring together two of Cunningham’s landmark works, Beach Birds and BIPED, each with live musical accompaniment. Cunningham’s genius has had a defining impact on modern dance and the avant-garde. His appearance with his company at the Mondavi Center in 2008, during which they performed BIPED (a work that features massive projections) was a landmark moment for modern dance in the Sacramento region.

Swinston was a member of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company for more than 30 years, and served as Cunningham’s assistant beginning in 1992. With CNDC d’Angers, Swinston brings his very personal interpretation of Cunningham’s legacy to this production.
