As the year winds down and the Merce Cunningham Dance Company wraps ups its final tour before disbanding, the Repertory Understudy Group follows suit. On October 21, the RUGs, as they are known, performed at the 92nd Street Y in a program featuring Winterbranch and Scramble. Photographer Elyssa Goodman captured dancers David Rafael Botana, Cori Kresge, Stacy Martorana and Timothy Emmet Lee Ward in the act. (There were five additional dancers as well: Becky Chaleff, Lauren Ferguson, Kyle Gerry, Antoine Lee and Suzanne Thomas.) The RUGs next performance will be held at the Cunningham Studio November 25--30, so jot down those dates. History is slipping away.
