When Merce Cunningham, sometime collaborator with Marcel Duchamp, died last year, his will instructed that his eponymous dance company embark on one last tour and then, possibly, dissolve. That tour is going on now and will conclude on December 31 2011 -- at New York's Park Avenue Armory. After that point, some of his works will be archived; the fate of the rest is as yet unknown.

While two explicitly Duchampian dances (Walkaround Time and An Occasion Piece) may not figure on the program, what remains is evidently in the spirit of the regular stoppages and bachelor machines. Schedule at
