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.
For more information on all the Merce 100: Vancouver events, please visit SFU School for the Contemporary Arts website.
The screening is also supported by our partners DanceHouse as part of the ongoing Speaking of Dance Series.
