About  Native  Green
     
When  choreographing  the  movement  for  Native  Green,  Cunningham  said  that  
Megan  Walker   Hannah  Straney   Bria  Bacon  
he  divided  the  body  into  four  parts:  legs,  torso,  arms,  and  head.  Each  part  of  the  
body  moves  in  sequential  order,  transforming  the  dancers  into  lanky,  bird-­‐‑like   Alan  Good   Andy  Santana   Alonso  Guzman  
creatures.   This   playful   nature   study   ends   as   the   dancers   pick   up   a   plastic   tube    
that  had  previously  lain  at  the  back  of  the  stage,  and  cling  to  it  as  if  they  are   Understudies:    Cayleen  Del  Rosario,  Graciela  Morales,  Quashierra  
perched  on  a  tree  branch.  Cunningham  wanted  the  tube  to  be  so  flexible  and   Muhammad,  Calleja  Smiley  
 
limber   that   it   appeared   to   be   alive.   The   set   and   costume   designs   were   by   Acknowledgements  
William  Anastasi,  who  drew  directly  on  the  backcloth  and  the  dancer’s  leotards   Special  thanks  to  Aubrey  Ball  and  the  staff  at  City  Center.
