The parts we never get to see
Sadly, Merce Cunningham Dance Company is disbanding after 58 years. To honor the company, The Brooklyn artist Kenneth E. Parris III is on tour with the members documenting their last few months through a series of graphite drawings, which the New York Times has been sharing with us. The company will disband on New Year’s Day, 2012. I thoroughly enjoyed these graceful pictures of the dancers’ down time and I’m sure you will too.
