Legacy TourOct 27-Oct 29, 2011

Set to disband after this tour, the Merce Cunningham Dance Company has helped cement the legacy of the iconic postmodern choreographer since its founding
in 1953. The Centralia native’s legendary dancing and choreography is matched by art-star fueled collaborations with composers, most notably John Cage, and visual artists such as Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg.
Presented by Seattle Theatre Group in conjunction with OtB, Spectrum Dance Theater, Cornish College of the Arts, Pacific Northwest Ballet and Seattle Art Musuem, this will be the final opportunity to see Cunningham’s choreography performed by the company he personally trained.
