Repertory of Merce CUNNiNGHAM by CNDC Angers – FR

Contemporary dance & exhibitions & master classes

May 2018 – June 2020

Created in 1978, the Centre national de danse contemporaine ­ Angers (CNDC), has dedicated itself to support contemporary choreographic creation. It has contributed to the emergence of some of our generation¹s most highly regarded French choreographer, including Angelin Preljocaj, Mathilde Monnier and Philippe Decoufle. It is also a place where research, experimentation, and artistic creation is open to many different disciplines.
Compagnie CNDC – Angers, the Centre¹s resident dance company, was created in 2013 under the direction of Robert Swinston (Assistant to the Choreographer Merce Cunningham from 1992 to 2009). Its eight French contemporary dancers perform Swinston¹s creations, as well as his adaptations of Cunningham¹s choreography (Event, Four Walls Doubletoss Interludes, and Deli Commedia Variation) and will perform at the Joyce Theater in April 2017 a program exclusively of Cunningham repertory that will include the reconstructions of Inlets 2 (1983), Place (1966) and How To Pass, Kick, Fall and Run (1965).
