** Co-presented with Cornish College of the Arts - Dance Department! Join us on May 12th at 7pm for a panel discussion led by Cornish Dance Dept. Chair Vicki Watts, Ph.D., featuring Spectrum Dance Theater Artistic Director Donald Byrd, and UW dance graduate student Brian Lawson, a recent performer of Cunninghams work **

If the Dancer Dances invites viewers into the intimate world of the dance studio. Stephen Petronio, one of todays leading dance-makers, is determined to help his dancers breathe new life into RainForest (1968), an iconic work by the legendary choreographer Merce Cunningham. With help from three members of the former Cunningham company, the film follows Petronios dancers as they strive to re-stage this great work, revealing what it takes to keep a dance  and a legacy  alive. Timed to coincide with Cunninghams centennial, If the Dancer Dances is the first documentary on the subject of Cunninghams work since his passing in 2009.
