Merce Cunningham Dance Company announces final tour

By Samantha Mehra

The Merce Cunningham Dance Company announced its final international Legacy Tour, which began in Columbus, Ohio, on February 12th, 2010, and ends December 31, 2011 in New York City. The tour, which will visit thirty-five cities during its run, is a last chance to see Cunningham’s work as performed by men and women he personally trained. Eighteen works will be performed, seven of which have long been out of the company’s repertory. Before his death on July 26, 2009, Cunningham approved the tour as a way of preserving his legacy, and tapering off the company’s activity. The company formed in 1953, and will disband following the tour. http://www.merce.org/schedule.html.
