Merce Cunningham’s CRWDSPCR
January 7, 2016

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.
