The final opportunity for UK audiences to see the Merce Cunningham Dance Company perform before it disbands at the end of the year, following Cunningham's death in 2009. Although his works will live on, these are the last dancers to be trained and directed by Cunningham himself and this is bound to be an emotional event – albeit in a very cool, controlled and Cunningham-esque way. There are three programmes, on Wednesday, 'Pond Way', 'Second Hand' and 'Antic Meet'; on Thursday and Friday, the epic 'Roaratorio'; and on Saturday, 'RainForest' and 'BIPED'.
