Virtual Cunningham Centennial Repertory Festival
STREAMING: Available beginning May 18 through June 14
Full performance of Tread, plus a conversation with Stephen and the Merce Cunningham Trust
The Merce Cunningham Trust will stream an archival recording of Merce Cunningham’s Tread performed by Stephen Petronio Company and recorded in April, 2019. Tread, from 1970, is considered to be one of Cunningham’s lighter works. American conceptual artist Bruce Nauman designed the décor which consists of ten large industrial fans aligned in a row across the front of the stage, alternately stationary and turning from side to side, and blowing out into the audience. A conversation between Patricia Lent, Jennifer Goggans and Stephen Petronio will also be released at the same time.
