Mondays with Merce 013: Re: Roaratorio

All about the revival of Merce’s landmark 1983 “Roaratorio.” We begin with a section of Merce himself discussing revivals. Guests include stager Patricia Lent; designer Mark Lancaster; and Neil Greenberg, who danced in the original, and saw the revival’s premiere. See archival film of Merce and the original cast; archival photos of composer John Cage and the Irish musicians who joined him in performance. Finally see excerpts of the revival premiere filmed by the Mondays with Merce team at the Los Angeles Music Center’s Disney Hall; Frank Gehry, architect.
