Merce Cunningham

Our next Artist at RAYGUN Stephan Moore, worked with Merce Cunningham for many years, which got me thinking about Cunningham, I thought I’d share a few small clips, I have taken the info below from the Merce Cunningham Trust Website which has some of his writings, they are worth taking the time.

MERCE CUNNINGHAM (1919-2009) was a leader of the American avant-garde throughout his seventy year career and is considered one of the most important choreographers of our time. Through much of his life, he was also one of the greatest American dancers. With an artistic career distinguished by constant innovation, Cunningham expanded the frontiers not only of dance, but also of contemporary visual and performing arts. His collaborations with artistic innovators from every creative discipline have yielded an unparalleled body of American dance, music, and visual art.
