Merce Cunningham’s RainForest
February 16 – April 27, 2008
LUMA screened, in large format, a DVD presentation of RainForest by dancer and choreographer Merce Cunningham (1919–2009), which was first performed in 1968. Inspired by a visit to Silver Clouds, Cunningham incorporated Warhol’s clouds into an electric score by David Tudor.
