Merce Cunningham Trust

Love Hellgren is just back from a cultural exchange trip to New York City.

He was invited by the Merce Cunningham Trust to participate in a two week Fellowship Workshop focusing on the piece August Pace by Merce Cunningham. The workshop included the restaging of the piece taught by nearly the full original cast of dancers, as well as lectures around Cunningham's work.

Apart from this Love visited the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts for research as well as numerous performing arts events and exhibitions in the city. The trip was made possible with support from The Swedish Arts Grants Committee (Konstnärsnämnden).
