Special Screening April 3rd in Honor of Merce Cunningham

One choreographer defined modern dance in the 20th century and that man was Centralia’s own Merce Cunningham. Join the Centralia College Foundation on Friday, April 3 for a screening of the feature film in honor of his style and achievements. Dancers from the Centralia Ballet Academy will perform a number prior to the 90-minute feature film. Merce changed the structure of modern dance and choreographed more than 200 dances and over 800 “site-specific” works. His techniques are legendary and practiced around the world. More information about Merce can be found at mercecunningham.org and an art tribute to Merce is a permanent installment in the lobby of Washington Hall on the Centralia College Campus.

Friday, April 3, Corbet Theatre in Washington Hall, Centralia College. $10 admission. Doors open at 6:00 p.m., Centralia Ballet performs at 6:40 and screening begins at 7.
