Choreography / 1993

Touchbase

"Touchbase," commissioned by the Rambert Dance Company, was created on that company and premiered June 20, 1992. The Rambert sent seven dancers to New York to rehearse alongside Cunningham's dancers at his Westbeth studio. Cunningham used the computer program Lifeforms in devising the choreography. "Touchbase" was playful in feeling. Much of the movement was athletic.
