Utilizing MASS MoCA’s massive Hunter Center theater with its black-box technical capacities, the program has welcomed milestone performances by artists such as Merce Cunningham, Paul Taylor, and Bill T. Jones, while also providing R&D and rehearsal time to emerging choreographers such as Karole ArmitageDavid Dorfman, and Kyle Abraham.
