Stephen Galloway, Costume designer
William Forsythe, Lighting designer

Forsythe’s seminal work, set to Gavin Bryars’s emotional and elegiac Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet, is a moving final love letter to his wife before she died.Winterbranch (1964)
Choreography: Merce Cunningham
Music: La Monte Young (2 Sounds - (April 1960))
Concept, Costumes, lighting: Robert Rauschenberg

This dramatic work features costumes by Robert Rauschenberg and a score, 2 Sounds, by La Monte Young. Merce Cunningham talked about two ‘facts’ of dancing – the act of falling, and unless one stayson the ground, the subsequent act of rising. The dancers engage in a series of falls, in both slow and fast motion, eventually clustering together to fall and rise united as a cohesive group.
