“Borst Park” was named after a small park in Cunningham’s hometown of Centralia, Washington. The dance referenced the kind of activity one might see in such a place – a picnic, games. It was a light piece described by one critic as “zany in an honorable tradition.” At the end of the picnic scene, the tablecloth and the objects spread out on it were pulled into the wings by a string. The music, Christian Wolff’s “Burdocks,” was an instrumental piece for six musicians who performed on stage.
