Presented by Contemporary Dance/Fort Worth in collaboration with the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the Annual Modern Dance Festival in Fort Worth, TX is celebrating the legacy of Merce Cunningham this month in celebration of his 100th birthday. Within a 16-day window at The Modern, a variety of films, videos, lectures, “happenings” or “events” and performances will be offered. Content directly representing Cunningham’s work is provided courtesy of the Merce Cunningham Trust.
We are honored to announce that Tammy Gomez, a BEI Emeritus Fellow, will be performing her spoken word piece “Current thoughts” at the festival, which pays homage to Cunningham by reflecting on the time she saw a performance of his in Austin. Her piece will be shown on Sunday, July 14, 2019 at 1 pm in the Grand Lobby. Admission is free!
