Charles Atlas’ Ocean

World Premiere Screening and Benefit

In September 2008, Merce Cunningham staged Ocean, one of the most ambitious works of his legendary 60-year career, within a massive Minnesota granite quarry. Renowned filmmaker and longtime Cunningham collaborator Charles Atlas was there, using five cameras to document this uniquely epic production. Two years later, he presents the world premiere of an extraordinary film that marks a key moment in Walker history and, with Cunningham’s death in July 2009, stands as the final living record of this stunning work. The ticket price includes a post-screening reception. Proceeds benefit the Cunningham Dance Foundation’s Legacy Plan.
