Event description

Description

David Vaughan was the archivist of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, author of Merce Cunningham/65 Years and Frederick Ashton and His Ballets, and was the dance historian in residence of the Jerome Robbins Dance Division from 2012 onward, holding monthly screenings of his favourite dance films and videos. David Vaughan passed away on October 28, 2017 but the Dance Division will continue the screening series in his honor.

Bharata Natyam and Odissi practitioner and dance historian, Rajika Puri, will showcase clips on Indian Classical Dance.
