New 3D film reimagines the breathtaking work of dance icon Merce Cunningham
Merce Cunningham created over 200 dance works, and collaborated with artists from Andy Warhol to Sonic Youth
Merce Cunningham is a legend of modern dance who for decades reimagined what the art form could be — the look, the sound, the feel. During his career he choreographed almost 200 dance pieces, and worked with arts icons including John Cage, Andy Warhol, Ralph Rauschenberg, Sonic Youth and many others. Amazingly, Cunningham danced until he was 90 years old. Now the new 3D documentary Cunningham is telling the dance icon's story, and recreating some of his groundbreaking works. Director Alla Kovgan joins q from New York to tell us all about it.
