This past Monday, July 26th, marked the one-year anniversary of choreographer Merce Cunningham’s death. One week after he died, his company gave a marvelous performance at Rockefeller Park. This year, on a day that was just as hot and sunny as last year’s event, River to River Festival presented “We Give Ourselves Away at Every Moment: An Event for Merce”. The performance included choreography by Jon Kinzel, Susan Marshall, Lucinda Childs, Faye Driscoll, and Bill T. Jones, all of whom were inspired by Cunningham’s dances and approach to dance-making. In the spirit of Cunningham’s use of chance operations, they presented pre-existing work that was repurposed for the occasion, with live music by David Eggar, Geoff Gersh, and Kotchy. Here are some photos from the performance, which was surely just as memorable as last year’s “Event”. And check out Eva Yaa Asantewaa’s wonderful photos on her blog, Infinite Body.
