Merce Cunningham: Night of 100 SolosOn the day that the giant of US choreography, Merce Cunningham, would have turned 100, the Barbican stages the world premiere of Night of 100 Solos. 75 dancers across three venues - the Barbican Theatre, BAM in New York City and UCLA's Center for the Art of Performance in Los Angeles - perform 100 solos choreographed by Cunningham, with live music and bespoke set design. Nearly half of the performers are former company members, led at the Barbican by Londoner Daniel Squire. To complement the performance, If the Dancer Dances (a 2018 documentary directed by Maia Wechsler) is screened in Cinema 2. It's all part of the official celebration of the Merce Cunningham Centennial which also brings Not a moment too soon to Silk Street Theatre.

About Barbican Theatre

The Barbican Centre's two theatre spaces - the Barbican Theatre and The Pit - offer everything from gritty reality to far-flung fantasy, from dance to drama, from established artists to those at the start of their careers. One of the country's largest arts centres, the distinctive concrete walls of the Barbican continue to house high-quality theatrical productions. More about Barbican Theatre
