Fall for Dance North is committed to bolstering the Canadian dance landscape in ways beyond our annual festival and events based programming. By partnering with other distinguished organizations in the form of co-presentations, we provide opportunities for emerging and established artists alike to expose their work to new audiences and environments.
An Evening with Cunningham:
September 12, 2019 – 7:30-9:00pm
Ryerson School of Image Arts - FREE
In support of our co-presentation 100 Years of Merce Cunningham with the AGO on November 20, we are pleased to present a curated evening of dance films and conversation, featuring the life and works of modern dance pioneer, Merce Cunningham.
Co-hosted by Ilter Ibrahimof (Artistic Director, Fall for Dance North) and Dylan Crossman (former Cunningham Dance Company dancer), this lively discussion about Cunningham's life and work will feature excerpts of five (5) short films. In between each film, Ilter and Dylan will provide historical and experiential context, for a more nuanced and in-depth understanding of Cunningham's creative processes and artistic vision.
