Merce Cunningham Dance Company - Points In Space mp3 album
Merce Cunningham treated space in a different way in ''Trails'' and ''Five Stone Wind,'' the two works the Merce Cunningham Dance Company presented for the first time this season on Thursday night at the City Center Theater, 131 West 55th Street. 'Trails,'' a 1982 piece that has been revived for this engagement, and ''Five Stone Wind,'' which dates from 1988, are similar in several ways. 'Trails,'' which involves 10 dancers, lasts half an hour. 'Five Stone Wind,'' for 15 dancers, takes 55 minutes to unfold. Mr. Cunningham respects it. He sends dancers through it. But he never regards it as an antagonist. Rather, he appears to view it as an eternal presence that can fill and empty with a multitude of changing shapes. Individuals may come and go, but space abides. People carefully explored space in ''Trails.

Merce Cunningham was one of the greatest American dance artists. His seven-decade career was distinguished by constant innovation in which he expanded the frontiers of contemporary art, visual arts, performing arts, and music. The Walker Art Center, a supporter of his creativity and work over several decades, created The Six Sides of Merce Cunningham as part of its ground-breaking exhibition - Common Time - devoted to Merce and his collaborators.
