Night of 100 Solos: A Centennial Event

Night of 100 Solos: A Centennial EventT1834682652
On the night Merce Cunningham would have turned 100, the Barbican participates in a one-off global event to celebrate the most influential American-born choreographer of the 20th century. Drawn from around the world, 75 dancers grace three stages to commemorate an artist (1919-2009) whose constant innovation and pioneering collaborations yielded an unparalleled body of dance, music and visual art. In programmes tailor-made for Los Angeles, London and New York, they perform 100 Cunningham solos in each venue, with bespoke sets and live music devised especially for the centennial. Led artistically by former company members, including Daniel Squire in London, the evening features anthologies of solos spanning Cunningham's deeply influential, 70-year career. This exceptional centenary event honours his conceptual ambition, his love of technology and, most significantly of all, his vibrant legacy.
