"Ocean," a film by Charles Atlas of a dance work of that name by Merce Cunningham, is screening through Sunday at the Whitney Museum in New York as part of the Whitney Biennial. The large-scale work was filmed at a Minnesota granite quarry in 2008 and the movie had its world premiere at Walker Art Center in September, 2010.
Reviewing the movie Tueday, New York Times dance critic Alastair Macaulay said it "beautifully captures exceptional dancers in extraordinary choreography."
