Merce Fair

Lincoln Center
Sat, 07/16/2011 (All day)

Join us for this day of performances, films, exhibitions, activities, and more in celebration of the life, work, and artistic vision of Merce Cunningham.

Before Merce Cunningham, dance was a world bedecked with music and narrative, encased in sets and costumes. In a seventy-year career of incomparable importance, Cunningham tore those intricacies down and forever redefined his art form, rebuilding it on its most essential foundation: the near-limitless possibilites of movement.

“The Tiger’s Mind”

Starting daily at 5 PM

Location: Ruyschstraat 4 III, Amsterdam (previous location of Kunstverein)

‘Notation is a way of making people move. If you lack others like aggression or persuasion, the notation should do it. This is the most rewarding aspect of a work on notation. The trouble is, just as you find your sounds are too alien, intended for a different culture, you make the same discovery about your beautiful notation. No one is willing to understand it. No ones moves.’ — Cornelius Cardew

“The Tigers Mind” is a serialised publishing project, initiated by Beatrice Gibson and Will Holder, that takes as its departure point, a score of the same name written by British experimental composer Cornelius Cardew in 1967.
