As Merce Cunningham Dance Company‘s tech crew was loading in this morning, I caught a sneak peek at the costumes and backdrops being set up for this week’s show at Walker — and the last tour of the MCDC company before they disband.
Chatting with Kevin Taylor, dancer and MCDC company manager, I noticed this killer stencil identifying the many crates that house the performance elements as they tour around the world. A tech with a great sense of humor and a love of rock and roll made the stamp in the ’90’s for the equally tour-hearty MCDC company.
