Performance: Compagnie CNDC-Angers and Robert Swinston

Arts and Entertainment

January 29, 2015

From: Joyce Theater

With a thirty-one year history of dancing and assisting Merce Cunningham, Robert Swinston, the Artistic Director of this French-based company, is uniquely qualified to carry on the Cunningham legacy. Compagnie CNDC (Le Centre National de Danse Contemporaine)-Angers makes its U.S. debut at The Joyce with Event, a remarkable work that Swinston created by assembling excerpts from pieces choreographed by Cunningham from 1965 through 1990. Featuring scene design by renowned French artist Jackie Matisse, Event is performed by eight dancers whose technical prowess pays tribute to the master choreographer who created the original work and to Swinston, who by capturing what makes Cunningham's work interesting to watch and beautiful to look at, allows audiences to experience it in its most current form. Live music will be performed by John King and Gelsey Bell.
