Merce Cunningham Workshop/Lecture

Merce Cunningham/John Cage Workshop/Lecture

Andrea Weber who was a dancer with Merce Cunningham Dance Company for eight years, will teach a master class and open lecture focusing on Merce Cunningham’s technique, repertory and philosophies.  Discussion will focus on the impact that Merce Cunningham and John Cage had on the modern dance world, what it was like to work with Merce directly, and the legacy that he left behind. There will be a typical yet condensed warm-up that movers and non-movers can participate in and work with chance procedures, the method that Cunningham and Cage used to create works. 

Class participation is offered to UC Davis students only but viewing audience is also welcome on Monday, October 8, 4:10 p.m. at University Club Studio. Admission is free.

Workshop participants must register via email: kjsouza@ucdavis.edu.
