The Merce Cunningham Dance Company will be back at Dia:Beacon this weekend wrapping up the company's series of performances among the museum's galleries. This weekend's performance will engage the Torqued Ellipses by Serra. Avant Turntablist, Maria Chavez will be among the audio collaborators for the performance. She has posted on her blog a few images she snapped earlier this week as preparations were being made. It seems as if each of the sculptures will house at least some of the sound elements.
All three performances this weekend are most certainly sold out. Other related happenings at the museum include a nature walk and birding tour to George Trakas's Beacon Point on Saturday at 10:30 am. The museum will be hosting a Family Day at noon. Reservations are suggested for both events, so if you're lucky there might be some space left. 845.440.0100 x33
