Join us for an unforgettable night of fun, guest artists, skyline views, and pop-up bars. This is your last chance to catch the exhibition Merce Cunningham: Common Time—and your last chance of the summer to attend Terrace Thursdays. Be surprised by local artists who pay tribute to Cunningham and his chance-based approach for an inspired evening of dancing, music, and the unexpected!
Discover how chance serves up a startling blend of connections! In “a kind of choreographic juggling act” (New York Times), Paul Lazar (Big Dance Theater) randomly recites stories from avant-garde composer John Cage’s Indeterminacy while performing a sequence of movements in the gallery. Featuring an electronic score mixed live by collaborator Lea Bertucci and choreography by Annie-B Parson.
Explore the exhibitions Common Time: Merce Cunningham, teamLab: Grafitti Nature, Jimmie Durham: At the Center of the World, and Katharine Fritsch: Multiples.
Mylar, spandex, dance leotards—play with the materials used in Common Time to create your own Cunningham-inspired costume to wear at Last Chance Dance. We provide the materials, you provide the creativity.
SuperGroup (Sam Johnson, Jeffrey Wells, and Erin Search-Wells) sets you up with moves to get down in a very unique, one-night-only dance. Choose a card, learn the moves, and get ready to dance when the announcer calls.
A dance party like you’ve never seen before, featuring dancers Margaret Johnson, Kara Motta, Eben Kowler, Maggie Zepp, and Karen McMenamy; keyboardist/vocalist Eric Mayson; and percussionist Toby Ramaswamy. This dance band is imbued with humor, groove, exertion, and extreme bliss. Don’t miss the best dance party in own—with performance order selected by you!
Following her performance in Cage Shuffle, join Lea Bertucci for a short set on Terrace 1. Lea mesmerizes audiences with a mixed-media sound that combines instruments, tape cassettes, and old school slide projectors. Enjoy this performance to close out the night.
