Celebrating its 25th season, the 92Y Harkness Dance Festival honors the Centenary of Merce Cunningham.
Jonah Bokaer, a member of MCDC from 2000-2007, two world premieres: For Yemen, a solo for Bokaer, and Mirror with Memory, danced by the company and featuring music composed and performed live by Alexander Turnquist.
Bokaer cultivates a multi-disciplinary approach to choreography that merges with art and design by enlarging the role of contemporary performance to enhance its contribution to society. “Conceptual, precise, breathtaking”, Bokaer is the author of 60 choreographic works.
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 Jonah Bokaer Choreography we feature Douglas Dunn + Dancers, Dylan Crossman Dans(c)e, and Ellen Cornfied of Cornfield Dance.
Program is subject to change.
