Abstract:

This disc begins with four TV news segments about the Merce Cunningham Dance Company's performances at the Paris Festival d'Automne; the segments include footage of performances by the company, excerpts from interviews with Cunningham (speaking in English and French), and comments in French from dancer Ashley Chen. Following the performances of RainForest and BIPED are fifteen minutes of footage of a reception at which Cunningham gives a speech, in French, discussing his company's historic ties with Paris and honoring the company's French presenter, Bénédicte Pesle, who is present and speaks briefly. The sound quality of these comments is poor.
