The Dancer and the Dance

Merce Cunningham in conversation with Jacqueline… Price: $29.99

From his debut in the Martha Graham Dance Troupe in the Thirties through to founding his own compnay, Merce Cunningham has worked towards establishing the purity of dance and its relationship with movement, clour, light and sound

This book presents a powerful portrait of Cunningham, a man of great vitality and genius, with a sound theoretical grasp of the expansion of modern dance

He not only discusses individual compositions, but also reveals a great deal about his collaborations with other modern masters such as John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, David Tudor, Jasper Johns and Morris Graves

All this expressed with the same fluidity and expansiveness that is so notable when he dances

" ...an important contribution to dance literature ... " - New Statesman
