Daniel Madoff and Andrea Weber in CRWDSPCR (1993)
In our January issue’s History: Lesson Plan, we learn about Merce Cunningham, the creator of chance dance.
Cunningham’s CRWDSPCR (1993) was created with DanceForms software, a computer program that allowed him to devise movement. The nonstop, frenetic activity recalls Grand Central Terminal at rush hour.
