Celebrating its 25th season, the 92Y Harkness Dance Festival honors the Centenary of Merce Cunningham.
Ellen Cornfield/Cornfield Dance exemplifies the exhilarating combination of heart and intellect, performed by dancers who “are among the most proficient technical and kinetically expressive dancers around” (Gus Solomons, 2014) and reveling in a mix of the elegant, robust and quirky. Ellen Cornfield was a member of MCDC from 1974-1982.
Join us for the rest of the festival celebrating the Centenary of Merce Cunningham, 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 Ellen Cornfied of Cornfield Dance, we feature Douglas Dunn + Dancers, Dylan Crossman Dans(c)e, and Jonah Bokaer Choreography.
Program is subject to change.
