Merce Cunningham Dance Company at Jacob's Pillow
July 22 - July 26, 2009
Jacob’s Pillow celebrates Merce Cunningham’s 90th birthday and a relationship that began with the company's first Pillow performances in 1955. His revolutionary approach to space, time, music and technology is honored with a retrospective of masterworks. The program includes Sounddance (1975), described by Cunningham as “space observed under a microscope,” CRWDSPCR (1993) a work of constant motion, and eyeSpace (2006) which invites audiences to listen to individualized scores using provided iPod Shuffles.
