Esprit de tour: A conversation on retracing the Merce Cunningham Dance Company's 1964 world tour
Tuesday, May 17
 6:30pm
 
*Location: The Parish Hall inside St. Mark's Church in-the-Bowery*
 
This event is co-presented by Danspace Project, the Merce Cunningham Trust, and the Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance (ICPP) at Wesleyan University. 


In 1964, the Merce Cunningham Dance Company embarked on a 6-month world tour throughout Europe and Asia, a series of events that fundamentally altered both the company and the many artistic communities whom they encountered during their journey. A half-century later, researcher Abigail Sebaly is pursuing the first comprehensive retracing of the original itinerary, crossing the globe to map the diverse artistic and cultural contexts that characterized each port of call, and collecting unique firsthand accounts from many who interacted with the company. 
Sebaly will present project updates as she shares her travelogue-in-progress and moderates a conversation with special guests.
