Merce Cunningham : a lifetime of dance by Merce Cunningham( Visual )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Merce Cunningham, a colossus of 20th-century choreography, is perhaps most famous for his sheer fecundity--inventing steps, choreographing 200+ dances, and over 800 "Events" (site-specific works). At the forefront of the American avant-garde for more than 50 years, he abandoned conventional elements of dance structure, most controversially, the relationship of dance and music influenced by his collaboration with composer John Cage. Endlessly inventive and inquisitive, Cunningham collaborated with a wide range of composers, designers, and artists, incorporating video into pieces, and employing computerized choreography in his later years to instruct members of his company. Unlike most choreographers, movement itself was his principal subject matter--neither narrative nor musical form determines the dance structure. Cunningham leaves a vast legacy, but he expressed his view of his art saying, "Dancing is the art of the present tense." Cunningham himself, along with his dancers, collaborators, and observers, traces the course of his long career and that of his dance company. Topics include: his special qualities as a dancer; his performances as a member of Martha Graham's company; his choreographic approach and sources of inspiration; his longtime association and collaboration with composer John Cage; his residency at Black Mountain College; the development of his use of chance procedures; the early years of his company; his preference for avant-garde music, and his collaborations with various composers; and his use of technological innovations such as the computer program Life forms
