Choreography, Sound Assemblage, and Costumes: Rudy Perez
Lighting: Joe Doran
Staged by: Sarah Swenson

Coverage (1970) by Rudy Perez, one of the singular artists of color of the Judson Dance Theatre. Born in 1929, Perez was a student of Cunningham’s and, until recently, an artist largely excluded from the dominant postmodern canon.
The Company premiere of Coverage (1970) was performed April 11-13, 2019 at NYU Skirball in NYC on a program with Merce Cunningham’s Tread (1970), and Stephen Petronio’s world premiere of American Landscapes.
