DOCUMENTARY A reunion with the iconic work of the legendary American choreographer Merce Cunningham – as a 3D cinema experience! The works of Merce Cunningham were milestones of dance, full of lyricism and technical perfection. The film follows the career of the dance genius who died in 2009 – from his early years as an impoverished dancer in 1940s New York to his rise to become one of biggest visionaries of modern dance – and portrays his artistic universe, along with that of his brilliant companions Robert Rauschenberg and John Cage. We relive Cunningham‘s most important works – together with the dancers from the last generation of his ensemble.
ALLA KOVGAN (*1973) was born in Moscow and lives in Boston. Since 1999, she has focussed on dance in intermedial performance and documentaries and since 2000 has been curator for the St. Petersburger dance film festival Kinodance.
