A futuristic fusion of dance, design, video, lighting and live music from the master of postmodernism Mr Merce Cunningham.

 

Originally created for Cunningham's 90th birthday in New York, Nearly Ninety is a testament to the boundless imagination of the late choreographer. Innovative solos, duets and emsemble groupings combined with the companies trademark seamless technical precision push preconceptions about contemporary dance.

 

With a musical composition by Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, indie rockers Sonic Youth and media sound artist Takehisa Kosugi, the Cunnigham Company take the audience back to a dance era dominated by thier founder.
