Northrop says
Merce Cunningham, the revolutionary American choreographer who ranks among the foremost figures of artistic modernism, will be the subject of a major Walker Art Center exhibition in 2017. Northrop joins the Walker in celebrating the Cunningham legacy with two of his groundbreaking dance works performed by France’s acclaimed CCN-Ballet de Lorraine.

Fabrications with live music

The acclaimed CCN-Ballet de Lorraine celebrates Merce Cunningham’s legacy with a rare chance to see two of his groundbreaking works. The evening features the dramatic, Walker-commissioned Fabrications and the “organized chaos” of Sounddance, performed at a high velocity from start to finish to a thundering electronic score by David Tudor. The program also includes Devoted, a new ballet by the young choreographic duo Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud with a score by Philip Glass.

“The whole experience, music and dancing was an exhilarating rush—like bobbing in the ocean, being swept by wave after wave, getting sucked under and tumbled around from all directions.” –The Washington Post
