Bolzano Danza Tanz Bozen - Beach Birds, BIPED



Bolzano Bozen

Center National de Danse Contemporaine - Angers

Tribute to Merce Cunningham

Choreography: Merce Cunningham


Two masterpieces signed Merce Cunningham in the year of the centenary celebrations since the birth of the American master, the most revolutionary artist of the late twentieth century. Robert Swinston, the CNDC of Angers, directed by one of the reference dancers of the now closed Merce Cunningham Dance Company, pays tribute to him with the revival of two milestones in the history of the choreographer: Beach Birds and BIPED.


Beach Birds was born in 1991 on music by John Cage, Cunningham's life and art companion, who died just the year after the Zurich debut of this piece created with the help of the painter Marsha Skinner, whose drawings in black&white served as inspiration for the costumes.


In the list of Cunningham's works at the end of the Millennium, BIPED was born in the wake of the master's experiments with motion capture technology at the University of Berkeley (California).
