In early June, as part of the 2011 Israel Festival, Merce Cunningham Dance Company will visit Jerusalem for a particularly unique engagement. This is the legendary troupe’s final world tour, as was clearly outlined in Merce Cunningham’s last will and testament. Always a forward thinker, a few short months before his death in 2009, Cunningham delineated a master plan for his dancers and artistic staff.They would embark on the Legacy Tour, which would include stops in cities that had been important to the ensemble in their half-century existence. One of the distinguished stops, luckily, is Israel. MCDC will perform one show at the Jerusalem Theater, a best of the groundbreaking choreographer’s repertory, and five “events”, or site-specific performances, at the Israel Museum.Upon completing this tour on New Year’s Eve 2011 in New York City, the troupe will forever disband, leaving only videos and a plethora of memories in its wake.The performance at the Jerusalem Theater will take place on June 6. Events will take place from June 9-11. For tickets, visit www.israel-festival.org.il.
