100 times Merce

With celebrations and special performances all over the world, 2019 has marked the centennial of the great American master choreographer’s birth – he who has exerted the strongest influence on the ideas and technique of contemporary dance. London, New York and Los Angeles created the 100 Solos for the biggest Cunningham “Event” ever. But tributes were paid to Cunningham also by the Festival de Montpellier, the Paris Opéra and various summer festivals all around Europe.
