On what would have been Cunningham’s 100th birthday, this celebration of his work is being mounted in New York (at BAM), London (at the Barbican) and Los Angeles (at UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance). More than two dozen dancers in each location perform a collection of 100 brief solos, all between 30 seconds and four minutes long. Plus, the musical director is composer John King, a longtime Cunningham collaborator.
