Points in Space

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Video dance with choreography by Cunningham, direction by Elliot Caplan and Cunningham, music by Cage, sets by William Anastasi, and costumes by Dove Bradshaw. It was performed by the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and videotaped at BBC Television Centre in London in May 1986. First broadcast on BBC Television on 18 Jul. 1987. The title is taken from Albert Einstein's assertion ‘There are no fixed points in space.’ Cunningham made the work, for the full company, especially for the camera, taking into account the multiple points of view afforded by the medium. He later produced it for the stage at City Center, New York, 10 Mar. 1987. The Paris Opera Ballet took it into the repertoire in 1990.

Subjects: Dance.
