Cunningham runs from Monday, February 17 thru Wednesday, February 19. Screens this week with an unusual schedule - Monday at 7pm, Tuesday at 4pm ONLY and Wednesday at 4pm and 7pm in Thalian Hall’s Main Theatre.
This poetic film traces the artistic evolution of legendary American choreographer Merce Cunningham over three decades of risk and discovery (1944–1972), from his early years as a struggling dancer in postwar New York to his emergence as one of the most visionary and influential choreographers worldwide. The 3D technology weaves together Merce's philosophies and stories, creating a visceral journey into the choreographer's world.
“What Kovgan's utterly transporting film does, through a thoughtful and dynamic combination of curated material and new performances, is radiate the rapturous power of dance.” Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter
“This is a good time to remember that nonfiction films can be theatrical experiences that demand to be seen on the largest screen possible.” Tomris Laffly, Variety
