On select Saturdays during “Merce Cunningham: Common Time,” local dance companies engage with Merce’s conviction of the “a common time” to activate the driving themes and concepts behind the exhibition. These collaborative and cross-disciplinary performances demonstrate overlapping relationships between movement, music, fashion, architecture, social media, set, and lighting design.
The series commences with an outdoor performance of “For the toward,” where vibrant and athletic performers Matty Davis and Will Arbery interact with steel objects, building nails, and poetic texts all while balancing on, pitching, and catching sculptures that weigh between 15 and 35 pounds. Expect nontraditional choreography and formidable displays of strength punctuated by startlingly tender moments of intimacy. Learn more: http://bit.ly/2jxHXRk
