Dance on Camera Tour
Dir. Maia Wechsler, USA, 2018, 83 min.
If a dance is not danced, it vanishes. Former Merce Cunningham dancer Lise Friedman and director Maia Wechsler follow a group of New York City’s top modern dancers as they reconstruct RainForest, an iconic work by the legendary Cunningham. Timed to coincide with Cunningham’s centenary in 2019, the dancers breathe new life into this enigmatic work, revealing what it takes to keep a dance alive.
