“Jarringly beautiful. ‘CUNNINGHAM’ succeeds in a way that most dance documentaries do not: as an art object in and of itself.” – Marina Harass, THE NEW YORKER
This exhilarating documentary traces Merce Cunningham’s artistic evolution over three decades of risk and discovery (1944-1972), from his early years as a struggling dancer in postwar New York to his emergence as one of the world’s most visionary choreographers. CUNNINGHAM weaves together Merce’s philosophies and stories, creating a visceral journey into his innovative work. A breathtaking explosion of dance, music, and never-before-seen archival material, CUNNINGHAM is a timely tribute to one of the world’s greatest modern dance artists.
