CUNNINGHAM

Even for those who know little about dance, Merce Cunningham is a recognizable name – an iconic figure in his field. His mid-20th century collaborations with composer John Cage (his lifelong partner) and visual artist Robert Rauschenberg were central to an era of transformation. Cunningham resisted labels. “I don’t describe it. I do it,” he once said. Now, with Cunningham, we have a chance to experience what it is he did. Filmmaker Alla Kovgan assembles the last generation of Cunningham dancers (led by Merce Cunningham Dance Company assistant director of choreography Jennifer Goggans) to stunningly present recreations of his landmark works along with archival footage of Cunningham, Cage, and Rauschenberg.  Rated PG for some smoking.  93 minutes.
