Writings - A catalogue of the many teachings and writings of Cunningham.



Cage and Cunningham - John Cage (renowned avant-garde Composer) and Merce Cunningham, partners in all senses of the word: life, love, and work, began their partnership in the 1940s. Cunningham and Cage would develop a radical new concept: music and dance could exist independently within the same performance. The dancers’ movements would no longer be tied to the rhythms, mood, and structure of music. Their creative collaboration was consistent until Cage’s death in 1992.

BIPED - Meet the master artist through one of his most important works: BIPED. Cunningham’s use of technology is one way in which he redefined dance. His masterwork BIPED demonstrates the evolution of Cunningham’s experiments with advancing technology. Many consider BIPED, created in 1999 when Cunningham turned 80 years old, to be the culmination of his use of computers to generate movement ideas. BIPED is the first Cunningham work in which virtual figures captured via Motion Capture technology share the stage with the company.
