Considered one of the most influential artists of our time, Merce Cunningham created work up until his final days in 2009. Trevor Carlson— then Cunningham’s executive director and constant companion—had intimate access to the last 15 years of the iconic choreographer’s life. Narrated in first-person by Carlson, Not a moment too soon is a multidisciplinary performance that provides a rare look into the last days of a master.
Making its North American premiere at The Cowles Center, Not a moment too soon, directed by Spanish artist Ferran Carvajal, uses dance and theater to transport us into the image and voice of Merce Cunningham using unseen footage and tapes shot by Cunningham himself.
A creation by Ferran Carvajal with Trevor Carlson.
