It is with great honor that Yoga for Dancers reviews "If the Dancer Dances" documentary for LA Yoga Magazine this May. Featuring Merc Cunningham’s work, “RainForest,” commissioned and reset on the Stephen Petronio Dance Company, “If the Dancer Dances” depicts the artistic process between love and conflict. Premiering in New York in late April, the film hits theaters in LA this May. To say "If the Dancer Dances" is a tour de force for dance historians and bards of movement, mess, and the symphonic cacophony that comes with witnessing a hard-won work would be an understatement. To immerse in Merce's work anew felt like a final bow, but never a bid adieu.
Special thanks to @mercetrust @stephenpetroniocompany @thejoycetheater and @layogamagazine.
