Merce Cunningham: Common Time

In 1997, Comme des Garçons' Rei Kawakubo collaborated with Merce Cunningham on the dance Scenario. It was a first for both: Cunningham had never collaborated with a fashion designer and Kawakubo had never created costumes for dance or theater. "My creations are not calculated from the start," Kawakubo is quoted in the Walker Art Center's remarkable exhibition catalog (launching in New York tonight at 192 Books.) "The fact that Merce Cunningham has always directed much of his attention to the workings of chance is something that I can appreciate only too well. The dancers intensify the meeting of body and costume; Scenario will become a thrilling synergy between form and space." Pictured here, Lisa Boudreau, Glen Rumsey and Thomas Caley performing Scenario in Paris, January, 1998.
