A masterfully produced documentary about avant-garde dancer Merce Cunningham and his enduring relationship with avant-garde musician John Cage – two of the key counter-culture figures in the 20th Century. Cunningham and his dance company are profiled with great care by director Alla Kovgan, who blends recreations of his landmark works with rich archival footage garnered over three decades. Following Cunningham from his beginning as a struggling dancer in 1950s New York to his emergence as one of the world’s most visionary and influential choreographers, the film also provides an insightful account of the rise of modernism and post-modernism. With its powerful use of 3D technology, Cunningham induces a visceral sense of the dancer-choreographer’s life and work.
