Led by Jean Freebury
In conjunction with Night of 100 Solos: A Centennial Event
Co-presented by BAM, Mark Morris Dance Group, and Merce Cunningham Trust
For dancers with and without disabilities

Part of the official celebration of the Merce Cunningham Centennial

Jean Freebury, a member of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company from 1992 to 2003, leads a class devoted to Cunningham’s use of chance procedures as a choreographic tool. Participants get an opportunity to experiment with chance to invent and sequence their own original movement. Assistants will be on hand to provide modifications for movement as needed.

Participants are welcome to share any accommodation needs up to 48 hours in advance and we will coordinate assistance accordingly.
