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.
