In 1991 at the age of 72, Merce Cunningham incorporated the use of a software program called LifeForms in his creative process making dances. He’d been asked to help develop the software now known as DanceForms.
Using this tool and others which Cunningham pioneered, Trustee Trevor Carlson will conduct a workshop with students from arts schools in Catalunya over six days culminated in a series of short Dance Films made by the young artists whose studies are focused in Dance, Music, and Film making. The DanceForms workshop participants will include students from Institute of the Arts Barcelona, Plató del Cinema, and Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya and Taller de Músics. This Official Merce Cunningham Centennial workshop is being supervised and coordinated by Choreoscope and Thorus Arts.
