During 2010 and 2011, Kenneth Parris III accompanied the Merce Cunningham Dance Company on the road in order to document their final tour. This Legacy Tour showcased eighteen works in fifty cities around the world and featured the last group of dancers personally trained by Cunningham himself. After fifty-eight years of artistic achievement, the Merce Cunningham Dance Company disbanded on New Year’s Day of 2012. Through years of collaboration with artists like Robert Rauschenberg, John Cage, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, David Tudor, and many more, their work forever changed how we see and define art in the twentieth and twenty-first century.
