Merce Cunningham

A seminal figure of the twentieth-century avant-garde, American choreographer Merce Cunningham (1919-2009) engaged the boundaries of dance for more than seventy years. Emerging from and expanding upon traditions of theater, classical ballet and modern dance, Cunningham radically rearticulated the semiotics of the dancing body and created a distinctive language that survives him. Throughout his long career, Cunningham collaborated with a number of filmmakers and video artists, including Charles Atlas, on a series of pioneering dance pieces created specifically for the camera.   full biography
