MCA Live: MERCUA/uncommon times


Engaging (some of) the letters of Merce Cunningham's name as a guide for a six-part time structure, MERCUA/uncommon times reimagines elements of Cunningham's philosophy of dance and collaboration for a one-time MCA presentation. This hourlong performance responds to the contemporary-historical moment as multiple contradictory time signatures within a single event. The event features set elements by visual artist Max Guy and music performed by Yvonne Lam of Eighth Blackbird.

This performance by Every house has a door is in response to Merce Cunningham: Common Time.
