merce my way

The ever-excellent Weinstein Gallery in Minneapolis sent this stunning card to announce Merce My Way, photographs of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company taken by Mikhail Baryshnikov. Merce Cunningham is for me a magical summer memory. The first time I saw him perform, with John Cage no less, was one summer night at a rural open-air performance center near New Hope, PA. Merce My Way runs from June 20 to August 20. I would love to see this show.
