Dance Capsules



Pioneered by the Cunningham Dance Foundation before it closed, digital “Dance Capsules” have preserved 86 of Merce Cunningham’s key works from the Cunningham repertory so that future generations can study and perform these works with knowledge of how they originally came to life.

Each Dance Capsule contains extensive documentation of a Cunningham work, including performance videos, sound recordings, lighting plots, décor images, costume designs, production notes, interviews with artistic personnel, and licensing information.
