Doubles (1984) will be the first workshop of the 2015 Spring and Summer Cunningham Workshop Season at City Center Studios. Patricia Lent (MCDC 1984 - 1993) is rehearsing with a select group of dancers for three weeks to reconstruct the complete work. This workshop will culminate in two studio showings as well as a performance at the 92nd Street Y. The 4:30pm showing will be live-streamed online by the NYU Tisch Dance and New Media program here.
