In Beach Birds you see a very sculptured piece, very much Merce Cunningham. The dancers, dressed in black and white leotards, mimic the movements of birds with stiff, non-fluid, almost jerky movements.
Watching this performance is almost hypnotic but still very enjoyable…and unusual. Performed to the non music of John Cage.
Do you think this would have been difficult to perform for someone who hadn’t trained in Cunningham’s style? Share with your friends and ask what they think.
