The fall season begins the weekend of September 9th with the iconic Merce Cunningham Dance Company “Legacy Tour.” This legendary company returns to the Hudson Valley one last time before it disbands at the conclusion of its final world tour in December.
The performances showcase Cunningham’s choreography performed by the last dancers he personally trained and illuminate his collaborations with composer John Cage and artist Robert Rauschenberg. The performances will open with Suite for Five (1956–58), “one of [Cunningham’s] most beautiful works, a complex, fluid distillation of time and space.” – New York Times
