The title Septet refers not to the number of dancers but to the seven-part structure and stylistic variations of Eric Satie's score entitled Trois morceaux en forme de poire. The piece was choreographed for six dancers, with each of the seven movements ranging from grave to playful, as in the somber lyrical duet w...

directed by Roger Englander, 1926-; choreographed by Merce Cunningham, 1919-2009; produced by Eastern Educational Network and WNED | WBFO; performed by John Cage, 1912-1992, David Vaughan, 1924-2017, Carolyn Brown, Merce Cunningham, 1919-2009, Meg Harper, fl. 1976, Barbara Dilley, 1938-, Albert Reid, Gus Solomons, 1940-, Valda Setterfield, 1934-, Sandra Neels and Jeff Slayton, fl. 1968, Merce Cunningham Dance Company; in How to Pass, Kick, Fall, and Run (New York, NY: Merce Cunningham Trust, 1968, first release 1968), 28 mins
Cunningham's How to Pass, Kick, Fall and Run (1965) had an athletic theme - a flavor of the sportif, as David Vaughan put it - but without any references to specific sports or games. The choreography, performed before the unadorned back wall of the stage, kept the dancers constantly in motion, with two or three th...

Cunningham's Place (1966) had an unmistakably dramatic quality. His own role, in particular, was described as having something of the neurotic intensity of such dances as his Untitled Solo--an intensity that climaxed at the end of the dance as he got into a large plastic bag and thrashed about. The dance is the fi...
