Description
Merce Cunningham conducts a class/rehearsal with a group of local dancers in Moscow. Cunningham speaks in English, with his instructions conveyed in Russian by a translator. Note that the sound on this video is extremely unclear. Despite having the same running time and setting as MGZIDF 4505 and MGZIDF 4507, this appears to be a different rehearsal, including material of assistant choreographer Robert Swinston preparing and working with the dancers.
