From the website Merce.org:
Starting Monday, January 12, 2009, we invite you to join us in the Merce Cunningham Studio for Mondays With Merce, a series of webcasts available for free viewing. Go behind the scenes at the Merce Cunningham Studio to see Merce teach advanced technique class and conduct rehearsals. The episodes will also include interviews with Merce Cunningham and his associates, including current and former dancers, artists and musicians, and choreographers who have been influenced by his work. We will also feature occasional visits by surprise guests!The videos are here. I recommend playing at slow speed. You'll have a smaller screen, but even with my DSL, my high speed feed broke up badly, making viewing all but impossible.
There is a note that the third video would be up on Jan. 26, but . . . not yet.
First of all--the third episode will be up NEXT Monday, Feb. 9. The webpage will be changed to reflect this. Sorry---that was the date of the second episode.
Second, I think our web streaming issues are now solved. Hurray! Staring this next Monday, you should have no trouble viewing Mondays with Merce on your computer, no matter your connection, band width, etc. We had much more traffic than anticipated (!!) (thanks, Ballet Talk!!!) and are trying to be responsive to everyone's viewing "issues." Thanks for this post. I am so so pleased to have Ballet Talkers viewing Mondays with Merce. Write to me at email@example.com with any comments, viewing problems, or anything at all, and I will respond as soon as I can. Thanks Carbro!
