Merce Cunningham a lifetime of dance by Merce Cunningham( Visual )
1 edition published in 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."
