Merce Cunningham, Liz Gerring, Kyle Abraham: Three Duets comes to the outdoor Henry J. Leir Stage as a one-night-only performance.

The evening brings together three distinctive duets: an arrangement from Merce Cunningham’s Landrover, Liz Gerring’s Dialogue, and Kyle Abraham’s MotorRover. These three works first appeared in a 2021 digital program called “In Conversation with Merce,” co-produced by the Merce Cunningham Trust and Baryshnikov Arts.

Jamie Scott, a former member of the Cunningham company, was engaged by the Trust to make a duet arrangement of material from Landrover for Jacquelin Harris and Chalvar Monteiro, and choreographers Gerring and Abraham were each commissioned by Baryshnikov Arts to make a duet in response.

Now, on the Leir Stage, these three duets will be seen together in live performance for the first time, in a program honoring Merce Cunningham’s enduring legacy and his more than 50-year relationship with the Pillow.

This performance is “Choose What You Pay,” with a suggested ticket price of $25.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
