Celebrating its 25th season, the 92Y Harkness Dance Festival honors the Centenary of Merce Cunningham.
Douglas Dunn, who danced with Merce from 1969-1973, presents a world premiere with his company, Douglas Dunn + Dancers. Dunn’s choreography has been likened to ‘an explorer of the impossible,’ and is rooted in intuition and the moving body that reveals the organic formations of movement mixed with the playful and witty.
Join us for the rest of the festival celebrating the Centenary of Merce, March 1-30, 2019. Our opening weekend features choreography by Merce performed by New York Theatre Ballet, New World School of the Arts and Melissa Toogood with Calvin Royal III. The following four weekends feature four world premieres from four generations of Cunningham dancers who have established their own companies. In addition to Douglas Dunn + Dancers, we feature Dylan Crossman Dans(c)e, Jonah Bokaer Choreography, and Ellen Cornfied of Cornfield Dance.
Program is subject to change.
