Merce Cunningham Trust

The Merce Cunningham Trust actively promotes the performance of Merce Cunningham's choreography by professional and student dancers around the globe. Our licensing projects range from productions of complete masterworks by world-renowned companies to introductory workshops designed for young dancers new to Cunningham's work. The Trust works closely with prospective licensees to select repertory and coordinate projects. The work is taught and coached exclusively by former members of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Inquiries should be addressed to Patricia Lent, Director of Licensing.
