Merce 100: Vancouver

100 Years of Merce Cunningham

Please join us for a series of events organized by the SCA's Megan Walker Straight (Merce Cunningham Dance Company alumni) celebrating the centennial birthday of Merce Cunningham (April 16, 1919 – July 26, 2009). Cunningham was one of the most important and widely influential choreographers of the 20th Century, as well as a prolific, life-long collaborator across the arts, most significantly with composer John Cage. This series joins with events around the world, led by the Merce Cunningham Trust.
